STUNG by the failure of Wednesday’s stayaway, visits by Nigerian and South African foreign ministers as well as the softening of attitudes by some European countries towards the Zimbabwean Government, MDC leader Mr Morgan Tsvangirai has threatened a bloodbath in the country.

Addressing diplomats, mostly from European countries at a hastily arranged meeting in Harare yesterday, Mr Tsvangirai said: "I want to say once again, that we have reached a stage whereby we can no longer counsel patience on such a dangerously restive population.

"There is clearly a red light flashing for the Mugabe regime to stop. There is a gathering storm of the people’s anger. We have no power to stop it and we refuse to take responsibility for whatever transpires," he said.

Mr Tsvangirai’s comments were also prompted by a scathing attack by some white members of his party who reportedly felt that he was not doing enough to bring about a change of government. MORE
