The "Mugabe" factor and sanctions

from AFP:

DAVOS, Switzerland — Zimbabwe Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai is pressing the world to end sanctions on his country as it climbs out of a political and economic abyss but wherever he goes the shadow of Robert Mugabe follows....

"I have taken a decision that we can work together, despite this acrimony, for the good of the country. There is a working relationship. Personally I don't know what his intentions are but I think what is important is for us to ensure that we finish this transition."...

(but as long as Mugabe remains there, many European and US officials aren't willing to give aid without lots of strings attached)
