Tsvangirai gets to work!

Amidst turmoil and chaos in Zimbabwe, including arrests of Morgan Tsvangirai's- Zimbawean Prime Minister- aide by Robert Mugabe on grounds of treason, Tsvangirai, starts work in earnest in any event.

He has been accepted by Mugabe and the Zanu-PF as the Prime Minister of Zimbabwe and that is all that matters now. Or, is it?

You see, Tsvangirai, has been installed as Prime Minister before. In fact, he won the first round of presidential elections last year. But, not only was there another round of presidential elections, where he and his party "lost" to Mugabe--in the midst of severe voter surpression by Mugabe's supporters.

Also, Tsvangirai, got the right to be in a power share with Mugabe as PResident and he as PM, but that has been met with problems--to say the very least.

Reported on this blog, the power share, sharing the police force and the military, between Tsvangirai and Mugabe, was bound to lead to friction.

Which it did. Tsvangirai has just now returned to country where he won the elections. Go figure!?!?

I hope that this, is a turning point and now, Zimbabwe, can move forward as Mugabe is now respecting the wishes of the international community.

Time will tell..but, from the look of it, this time, it feels different. Tsvangirai and the MDC (his party) has work to do, seriously.
