Zimbabwe’s opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai will attend a summit next week aimed at saving a troubled power-sharing accord, his party’s spokesman said on Friday.

“We are not boycotting Monday’s meeting,” Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) spokesman Nelson Chamisa told AFP.

“It is our hope that this meeting will bring closure and finality to this issue of power sharing and enable Zimbabwe to respond to the dire situation which the people are facing,” he added.

Tsvangirai had refused to go to Swaziland for a meeting with Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe and four other regional leaders on October 20, in protest that he was only given emergency travel documents at the last minute.
