MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai, who is visiting the United Kingdom this week, addressed spoke at the Royal Institute of International Affairs (Chatham House) Friday on the situation in Zimbabwe and the way forward.

In his wide-ranging address, the former prime minister discussed what he described as the national economic crisis worsened by year’s elections which he said were illegitimate. He said the way forward was a national dialogue involving al state-holders.

The MDC-T leader suggested he was open to another coalition administration with President Robert Mugabe and but insisted that measures would need to be taken to dismantle Zanu PF control of key State institutions such as the security services which he blamed for last year’s “fraudulent elections”.

Tsvangirai also expressed concern over moves by the European Union (EU) to re-engage with Mugabe and Zanu PF saying it was ill-aised of the bloc to try and normalise relations without insisting that Harare addresses concerns Brussels raised over the conduct of last year’s elections.
