World leaders call for Zimbabwes Mugabe to step down



As cholera spreads through Zimbabwe and the humanitarian situation worsens, world leaders — including U.S. President Bush — are calling for President Robert Mugabe to step down.

Many African countries have been slow to criticize the Zimbabwean leader, but Kenya recently called for foreign intervention.
A spokesman for Mugabe claimed that the U.S. and United Kingdom are planning to invade Zimbabwe.
Andrew Meldrum, a senior editor at GlobalPost, reported from Zimbabwe for more than 20 years and joins Martin Savidge to discuss the humanitarian situation in Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabes role in the country and international calls for the leader to step down.
