But, in parliament it has offered no detailed alternative economic programme to that of (Finance minister) Mthuli Ncube. So Ncube leads the economic debate because no one is challenging his policies. I have consistently pointed out the flaws in Ncube's policies, but it is as if the MDC - while seeking a fairer distribution of wealth - has no ideas about how to generate wealth and therefore recovery," External link

For many years now, hugely growing powers like India and, from Africa, Nigeria and South Africa have sought permanent seats - to no effect.

Stephen Chan said ( about Emmerson Mnangagwa ) : "Mnangagwa is understandably bitter and aggrieved. But he cannot seize power from the outside. No neighbouring country will help him do that. He depends upon a coup from inside the country - but I doubt whether the generals will do that. No one would recognise a government formed by a coup. Mnangagwa has played a hard game, and has lost.
