Tsvangirai meets Catholic priests


Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai last week met Roman Catholic priests from Southern Africa after the group’s request to observe the forthcoming general elections which Zanu PF insists should be held this year.

Tsvangirai’s spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka yesterday confirmed the premier had met the delegation from the Inter-Regional Meeting of the Bishops of Southern Africa (IMBISA) and discussed the possibility of inviting them to observe the next elections to avoid a repeat of the 2008 bloody polls.

“Indeed the meeting took place. Wherever there is the voice of God, the PM will answer. He had a meeting with them like everyone else and they are keen to have a free and fair election that would lead to a credible and legitimate government. That is what Zimbabwe wants, that is what Sadc want and that is what God wants,” Tamborinyoka said.

A member of the delegation who declined to be named told NewsDay: “We spoke to the Prime Minister and we told him our concerns that we do not want a repeat of the violent elections. We told him that we would love to observe the next elections in Zimbabwe.We wish to contribute to a free and fair election and to understand what part to play for a free and fair election.”
