Morgan Tsvangirai, leader of Zimbabwe's opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party, has been freed after being detained for more than eight hours by the police. Tsvangirai said that he was released without charge late on Wednesday. “It is nothing but the usual harassment which is totally unnecessary," Tsvangirai said. "We have seen worse things than this." He was detained by police earlier during the day with several of his supporters while campaigning in the presidential run-off vote.
And he has: there have been pictures of him after beatings. Takes a lot of courage.
Looking ahead to a post-election transition, Tsvangirai said his government will reform the civil service, judiciary and security forces, but he pledged not to purge pro-Mugabe officials.
