Zambia/Zimbabwe: Mwanawasa on Mugabe

Zam president Levy Mwanawasa's position on Mugabe ... no regime change from without.
“In the same manner as we would not want external parties to determine our political direction, Zimbabweans should be left alone to do what they is good for them,” Mr Mwanawasa said.
Mwanawasa had gone to the Commonwealth summit intent on championing Zim's desire to be let back into the fold.

Reuters interviewed him as he was leaving Abuja and has this story ... He is quoted as saying that the richer Commonwealth countries "bulldozed" Zim's continued suspension through.
