TO BOYCOTT OR NOT?


MDC divisions over Zimbabwe poll.

The MDC leadership have been walking to work in protest at fuel shortages. Zimbabwe's main opposition party is in turmoil, divided over whether to boycott next month's Senate elections. On Wednesday, Movement for Democratic Change leader Morgan Tsvangirai said the MDC would boycott the Senate vote.

But MDC spokesman Paul Themba Nyathi said a majority of the party leadership voted in favour of participation and said they would be doing so. Mr Tsvangirai's spokesman William Banga told the BBC this was the most serious crisis the party has faced internally.

He said the next 48 hours would be important for the party as they sought to resolves the row and he hoped "that emotions would give way to reason".
