Top US envoy for Africa: Zimbabwe has collapsed

December 18, 2008 20:57

Zimbabwe has collapsed and the world must act now to keep it from deteriorating into Somalia-scale chaos, the top US envoy for Africa said Thursday. US Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs Jendayi Frazer said questions about how much longer Zimbabwe can withstand hunger, disease and political stalemate before disintegrating ignore that "there is a complete collapse right now." If action is not taken soon, chaos could ensue and Zimbabwe's neighbors will be calling for peacekeepers, as some are now calling for in Somalia, Frazer said during an interview in South Africa.
