APC president Nason Msoni says the region should not allow the situation in Zimbabwe and the Congo DR to degenerate into failed States.
In a statement the opposition leader said a failed Zimbabwe and a failed Congo DRC would have disastrous consequences on the regional stability of the SADC region and the Great Lakes region.
Msoni warns that ignoring the instability in Zimbabwe and Congo DR and hoping that it will go away on its own is a dangerous route which should be avioded at all cost.
“We must warn that ignoring all the simmering telltale signs of political and economic instability in Zimbabwe and Congo DRC but somewhat hoping it will go away on its own is a dangerous political ruse and chance to pursue.
“What is essentially playing out has everything to do with the recent unsettled stolen elections and the ultimate subverting of the collective will of the people through their self styled bogus independent electoral Commissions as is the case in most other countries in the subregion.
“The UNHCR and regional governments should potentially be prepared for the largest regional mass movement and migration in the subregion that will eventually ensue as a consequence to the growing instability in the Congo DR and Zimbabwe,” he said.
He also said there is need to be mindful of the citizens who might be displaced internally.
“The number of internally displaced persons should also be on the cards as citizens might be forced to dislocate from volatile areas to the less volatile areas.
“The resolution of the question of political instability in the two countries require international effort to resolve and help build political consensus.
“In the SADC grouping there is a serious deficit of qualitative leadership with the necessary skills and capacity to provide the much needed leadership for the talks unfortunately,” he said.
