Zimbabwe opposition declares South African mediated talks a failure

Zimbabwe's main opposition party says that South African-mediated talks to ease the political and economic crisis have ended in failure.
The Movement for Democratic Change says in a statement Saturday that President Robert Mugabe violated the spirit of the dialogue by pressing ahead with the March 29 date for presidential and parliamentary elections, ignoring opposition demands for a delay.
Southern African leaders last year appointed South African President Thabo Mbeki as mediator, despite opposition concerns about his policy of quiet diplomacy rather than public criticism of Mugabe.
