Zimbabwe Churches Propose Suspension Of Elections For Seven Years

Heads of Christian denominations in Zimbabwe are pushing for the suspension of general elections to allow the country to "heal past wounds, recover economically and build a new political culture of cooperation focused on nation-building". The southern African country is in the throes of a deepening socio-economic crisis with President Emmerson Mnangagwa looking more unsure of what needs to be done with each passing day to reverse the deteriorating situation.
