Cape Town – Former Zimbabwean prime minister Morgan
Tsvangirai has said that Zimbabwe doesn’t have the capacity to intervene in the
Mozambique plunged into chaos last week after the
withdrawal from a 1992 peace deal by Renamo rebels.
According to a Newszimbabwe.com report, Tsvangirai said
Mozambicans had the mandate to resolve the crisis through dialogue.
Tsvangirai’s remarks come after Zimbabwe's deputy foreign
minister Christopher Mutsvangwa indicated last week that his country was not
going to watch as Renamo plunged the whole region into chaos.
Vice President Joice Mujuru also voiced her concern saying
the developments in Mozambique were out of regional expectations.
Zimbabwe, which intervened in Mozambique in the 1980s to
protect key trade routes, is concerned that a further unravelling of the
situation would adversely impact an economy struggling to recover from a 10-year recession, according to the report.
Mozambique’s president, Armando Guebuza admitted that peace
was under threat in his country.
