Will African Union step up?

Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga has urged the African Union to suspend Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe until he allows free and fair elections.

The call came as Zimbabwe's Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) opposition said the country faced a constitutional crisis. The situation in Zimbabwe overshadowed the African Union summit in Egypt.

UPDATE: Question asked... and answered
"Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe has been warmly welcomed at a summit of African leaders, despite international concerns about the legitimacy of his re-election."
Silly me.

LAST WORD: Going with the African solution
Presidential spokesman George Charamba had harsh words for Western pressure: “They can go hang. They can go and hang a thousand times.”
Yeah... we're all shocked.
