Zimbabwean bloggers share their fears and hopes with the BBC:

Zimbabwe bloggers doubt Mbeki clout

“Not one country will make a stand against Mugabe, by not doing anything, the free world is virtually recognising Mugabe and his cabinet” – Debvu, The Bearded ManDemocracy in Zimbabwe Now!

“Mugabe is predictable – he’ll simply take whatever he wants. The rest of the world and Africa are predictable – they’ll simply let him! It is a real pity Mugabe is not white – he would have been stopped long ago” – Ants, This is Zimbabwe

“The rest of the world is now concerned with the forthcoming global recession and has forgotten the poor people of Zimbabwe” Luanshya Blue, This is Zimbabwe

But is anyone listening?
