The Zimbabwe Elections

On the 29th March Zimbabwe will go to the polls. From the outside its a complex thing to get to grips with. However, one thing appears plain. Change is badly needed and Zimbabawe needs fair elections, and for Robert Mugabe to loosen his grip and hand over power in a peaceful transition. But will it happen?

Fay Chung is one independent candidate who has decided to run in this potentially risky election process, and instead of supporting the MDC has thrown in her lot with Simba Makoni. Her international support blog is now running at http://zimbabwe-now.blogspot.com/ and provides some interesting alternative views.
