Morgan Tsvangirai: Zimbabwe 'not ready for elections'

Although no date has been set, election fever is building in Zimbabwe. President Robert Mugabe's Zanu-PF party is clamouring for elections this year.

According to analysts, 88 year-old Mr Mugabe - after 32 years in power - seems in a hurry to go to the polls to secure another term.

The BBC Africa's Lewis Machipisa spoke to MDC leader Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai who is visiting the United Kingdom.
