  1. The reason for not congradulating him is very simple. The election is not yet throuh because of the court challenge and the decision is just logical. But it is also interesting to note that they have given him a post in the grouping which is a possible indication that they have high hopes for his victory.

  2. Even here at home his inauguration has been postponed thus why he is being addressed as the President – Elect. SADC leaders have just followed the constitution of Zimbabwe, there is no a bid issue as reported by the journalist.
