    LILONGWE: Southern African leaders opened an annual summit on Saturday (Sunday in Manila) endorsing the outcome of disputed elections in Zimbabwe that extended President Robert Mugabe’s 33-year rule by another five years. Zimbabwean opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai’s MDC party had withdrawn a legal challenge to the elections, claiming the courts would not be fair. That removed the last hurdle to 89-year-old Mugabe’s inauguration for a seventh term.
