Zimbabwe continues to be in a state of flux after a politically tumultuous few days. President Mugabe was expected to resign during a televised address - instead he defied his party by clinging to the presidency and vowing to stay on.

Sir Don McKinnon joins the panel to tell us more about the unfolding situation and whether China is playing a role.
