Tsvangirai passport confiscated, then returned

Latest update : 2008-08-14

Zimbabwe's opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai had been detained at the Harare airport and had his passport confiscated, then returned. Tsvangirai was on his way to a regional meeting in South Africa.

 

HARARE - Zimbabwean authorities have prevented opposition MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai from leaving the country to attend a regional SADC summit in South Africa after confiscating his emergency passport, an MDC official said on Thursday.

 

"We can't travel without passports. There's no point. In any case the plane has left and Tsvangirai has already gone back. He has no patience for this," Movement for Democratic Change Secretary-General Tendai Biti said.

 

The MDC said Tsvangirai was due to travel to South Africa to attend a summmit of regional grouping SADC after power-sharing talks with President Robert Mugabe stalled this week.
