1. Under headline "U. S. has a role to play in solving
Zimbabwe crisis" the July 10 edition of the
independent daily "The Daily News" carried the
following op-ed by Marko Phiri, political
commentator, in which he advocates for a United
States involvement in resolving the political,
economic and social turmoil in Zimbabwe. Excerpts:

2. ". . .For Zimbabwe, the role of America in censuring
rogue regimes is apparently
well-appreciated. . .What is interesting about the
Zimbabwe crisis is that it has reportedly divided
Pretoria and Washington, with Bush telling Thabo
Mbeki what he ought to do with his neighbor, who has
turned out to be a poor student of democracy. As
reported, Mbeki is not too ready to be told what to
do or have his foreign policy defined for him by
American hegemonic interests."
