Zimbabwe: earliest harvest April 2010, slowly starving, 80% of children not in school

LA Times: Jimmy Carter says Zimbabwe crisis is 'much worse' than imagined. Excerpts:

...dismay that Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe and his government refused to acknowledge the problem even existed.

He said this year's planting season had been squandered because there was no seed available. The earliest possible harvest now is April 2010...

South African President Kgalema Motlanthe said the crisis was so serious that Zimbabwe could implode and collapse. He said the root cause was the lack of a legitimate government.

Tsvangirai's Movement for Democratic Change, or MDC, argues that it would not be able to solve the humanitarian crisis with Mugabe and his security forces still dominating the nation.

Tsvangirai's spokesman: "The person who's responsible for the mess is Robert Mugabe," he said. "He's been in power for 28 years."
