Zimbabwe's ZANU-PF Denounces Allied Military Intervention in Libya


Tsvangirai MDC spokesman Nelson Chamisa said Zimbabweans are in solidarity with the people of Libya and pleaded for assistance to those who are affected by the Western air strikes and the ongoing fight between pro-Gadhafi and rebel forces

Following the African Union's call Sunday for an "immediate stop" to Western military action in Libya, a spokesman for Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe's ZANU-PF party accused the allied powers of violating Libyan sovereignty.

The Movement for Democratic Change formation of Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai urged an immediate ceasefire.

Meeting in Nouakchott, Mauritania, the African Union's panel on Libya urged a halt to military action by the United States, France and Britain against Moammar Gadhafi's forces.

The AU body also asked Libyan authorities to ensure "humanitarian aid to those in need," as well as the "protection of foreigners, including African expatriates living in Libya."

Reached by VOA, ZANU-PF spokesman Rugare Gumbo said removing Gadhafi has long been the intention of those who opposed his African values and principles.

Tsvangirai MDC spokesman Nelson Chamisa said Zimbabweans are in solidarity with the people of Libya and pleaded for assistance to those who are affected by the Western air strikes and the ongoing fight between pro-Gadhafi and rebel forces.
