Zimbabwe: Politics and Government

Volume 486: debated on Tuesday 13 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent assessment he has made of the political situation in Zimbabwe. (243680)

The appalling humanitarian crisis in Zimbabwe is a symptom of the wider political failure. Robert Mugabe’s regime is unwilling to respond to the needs of Zimbabwe’s people, who voted overwhelmingly for change last March. We continue to press for action to resolve the crisis via the EU and UN Security Council and with countries in the region and across Africa.
