The African Union and neighboring countries - South Africa in particular - have failed the people of Zimbabwe miserably. From AFP:

The number of cholera cases recorded in Zimbabwe has risen past the 65,000 mark, with more than 3,300 deaths since the outbreak began, latest data from the World Health Organisation showed Wednesday.

Some 65,739 people have been infected by the disease since August 2008, and 3,323 among them have died, the WHO said in its latest daily update.

Some 1,038 new cases and 28 deaths have been added since the previous update on Tuesday.
