Zimbabwe opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai, currently visiting Australia, had a full round of appearances in Melbourne yesterday, including an interview with Tony Jones on Lateline and a public lecture in the evening at Melbourne University.

Different audiences care about different things; Jones was unfailingly sympathetic and dwelt on the personal risks that Tsvangirai faces, but some in the university audience wanted to know why he hadn't gone further and embraced armed resistance to the Mugabe regime.
