Correctional Services spokesman Manelisi Wolela has denied allegations that student leader Mcebo Dla.
Daniel Thulare, in his letter "Mbeki was right all along" (July 24), is obviously a Mbeki supporter and has not been following the tragedy unfolding in Zimbabwe over the last five years.
Quiet diplomacy was a poor strategy since there was never a barometer to measure its success. People are still dying due to political violence. If anything, Mbeki's policy has been used as a cover to further entrench Mugabe's position and prolong the people's suffering.
Mbeki missed a golden opportunity to leave a legacy after the first round of voting when Zanu-PF lost the vote.
