MDC congress grossly overshadowed by squabbles in ZANU-PF

The long-awaited congress of the Morgan Tsvangirai faction of the Movement for Democratic Change kicks off today but it has been reduced to almost a non-event.  The media, especially the private media that has backed the MDC before, has been totally engrossed with the internal “squabbles” in the Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front which holds its congress in December.
