Tsvangirai meets Elders

Johannesburg – Zimbabwe's Movement for Democratic Change leader Morgan Tsvangirai met the Elders' delegation in Johannesburg on Saturday, said the delegation's spokesperson.

"He met them earlier today, unfortunately I’m not in a position to disclose what was discussed," said Katy Cronin.

The Elders’ delegation has three members, former United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan, former United States president Jimmy Carter and international advocate for women’s and children’s rights Graca Machel.

They announced on Saturday that they had to cancel their trip to Zimbabwe for humanitarian mission this weekend, after they were refused entry into the country.

Tsvangirai was due to address the Harold Harold Wolpe Lecture at the University of KwaZulu-Natal on Saturday afternoon, when organisers announced that he was meeting with the Elders. – SAPA
