Zimbabwe Archbishop Preaches Unity To Divided Opposition Party

Roman Catholic Archbishop Pius Ncube of Bulawayo, a fierce critic of Zimabwean President Robert Mugabe, reiterated Friday that the divided Movement for Democratic Change needs to reunite if it is to have any hope of achieving democratic change.

The prelate said the MDC has not provided visionary leadership, and blamed party founder Morgan Tsvangirai for the continued split in the opposition.He went on to call the split of the MDC a stumbling block to change in the country.

Ncube said in an interview with reporter Jonga Kandemiiri of VOA's Studio 7 for Zimbabwe that if the factions could not reunite, Zimbabweans seeking change will have no choice but to gravitate to other, more effective, leaders.
