Opposition group spurns mediator

From Times Wire Reports

The political opposition declined to meet with visiting South African President Thabo Mbeki and said that he should be replaced as mediator in the country's crisis.

President Robert Mugabe met with Mbeki for nearly four hours on his third visit as mediator. The two presidents did not speak with reporters.

Opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai didn't meet with Mbeki, whom he regards as biased, spokesman George Sibotshiwe said.
