The Zimbabwe Situation, 7 Jan 2013 [cached]
The MDC trade minister, Priscilla Misihairabwi-Mushonga, went as far as to claim that SADC member states would intervene in Zimbabwe if the vote was not free and fair. "I have no doubt that if things went to the worst in Zimbabwe there would be a military intervention... The mood I see in SADC summits is that they will not allow a situation where Zimbabwe will go through an election that is not free and fair again. And they will be right in order to do that intervention, which is why some of us believe that there is still hope", Misihairabwi-Mushonga said.

Mrs Priscilla Misihairabwi-Mushonga
Born on 31 December 1966, Misihairabwi-Mushonga is a mother, an activist, an organiser and a leader of the struggle for social justice in Zimbabwe. She is as confident and eloquent chairing the Public Accounts Committee in Parliament as she is discussing bread and butter issues with the impoverished women, children and men of Zimbabwe. She has been a Member of Parliament for Glen Norah Constituency since 2000.
Misihairabwi-Mushonga is a human and civic rights champion who launched into politics through the women's movement.
Misihairabwi-Mushonga had to fight and move mountains for her right to participate in a municipal election in the Supreme Court after she was initially disqualified on the basis of her age.
Beisdes being a passionate human and civil rights activist, she is a trained mass communicator and is also well-trained in strategic management. She has also held the position of Shadow Minister for Foreign Affairs in the MDC.
Her political achievements include among others being the first woman in Zimbabwe to chair the Parliamentary Public Accounts Committee, youngest person to serve as a councillor, one of the only two women to hold a position in the MDC Management Committee after she was elected Deputy Secretary General at the party's second National Cogress in Bulawayo on the 25th of February 2005.
She is a founding member of the National Constitutional Assembly and strongly believes in the fight for a new and democratic constitution in Zimbabwe. She bemoans the collapsing economy in Zimbabwe and is angry with the harassment that the poor people of the country have to endure when their houses are destroyed and the little things that they are trying to sell to earn a living are brutally taken away from them by the Robert Mugabe regime.
Says Misihairabwi-Mushonga: "These are the poorest of the poor and when they are arrested they get kicked around, they are abused and they are forced to pay fines, those who don't have money have to spend days in filthy cells sometimes without even being taken to the courts. This pains me greatly. You have a government that has run down the economy to the extent that we have 75% unemployment. That same government then tells people that they can't employ themselves and destroys their tuck shops. I mean how crazy can you get?"
Misihairabwi-Mushonga also serves as the Deputy Secretary for the Southern African Public Accounts Committee in Southern Africa. She has worked with the civic society especially on issues such as HIV/AIDS, women's issues and development issues. She is a devout Christian and is married with one child.
