Morgan Tsvangirai has sought refuge at the Dutch Embassy in Harare in fear of his safety. This information came to light after the raid conducted by Zimbabwean authorities at MDC HQ this morning where they arrested 60 people. Perhaps Tsvangirai knew the authorities were coming after him and this time they meant business. The Dutch Embassy has issued a statement that Tsvangirai is not seeking political asylum in The Netherlands. Yet I wonder what options Tsvangirai has left. He's not safe in Zimbabwe. But if Tsvangirai leaves then watch for a mass exodus to follow.
