QUOTE: "Jack Straw, Britain's Foreign Secretary, would strengthen his case against Mr Mugabe if he were to be more vociferous in his defence of human rights and democracy elsewhere and especially elsewhere in Africa. Yoweri Museveni, the current president of Uganda, is favoured by the West because he allows a free press and pursues economic policies of which we approve, but his no-party system means Uganda's elections, while nominally free and fair, are democratically flawed. Kenya is a more obvious case, where President Daniel Arap Moi's repression of political opposition renders his multi-party system a mockery of democracy.

Britain and other democracies are right to condemn last week's vote in Zimbabwe as a fraud, but must adopt a similar uncompromising stance in demanding free and fair elections in the rest of Africa and the WORLD."
