Zimbabwe After the Disputed Election: The Way Forward

25 July 2014 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Chatham House, London


Morgan Tsvangirai, Prime Minister of Zimbabwe (2009-2013); Leader, MDC-T 
Chair: Alex Vines OBE Research Director, Area Studies and International Law; Head, Africa Programme, Chatham House



The success of President Robert Mugabe's ZANU-PF in Zimbabwe's 2013 elections led to the end of the country's government of national unity, as the ruling party consolidated political power. The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC-T), Zimbabwe's main opposition party, is now assessing its future direction as issues of party leadership and funding come to the fore.

Morgan Tsvangirai served as prime minister of Zimbabwe in the former government of national unity. He will reflect on recent developments within MDC-T, the importance of strengthening opposition politics for Zimbabwe's future and the role that international partners can play in Zimbabwe's democratic progress.
