Local groups campaign July campaign update: Zimbabwe elections
President Mugabe has announced that elections will take place in Zimbabwe on 31 July. This date was disputed by Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai and the South African Development Community has recommended that it be pushed back to 14 August.
Zimbabwe's constitutional court will now decide. With just weeks to go now until the polls are due to open, it is so important that we take action now to avoid a repeat of the violence and fear seen five years ago.
In 2008 it was Zimbabwe's neighbours in the Southern African Development Community helped to reduce the violence. Now it is crucial that they act to prevent such bloodshed from happening again.
