It's a start. The AU shouldn't have supported the power-sharing deal in the first place. Now that Kenya is pushing for Mugabe to be ousted the rest of AU will have to sit up and take notice.

Obviously the South African ANC will be required to add enough pressure to the pot but with the Kenyan government making this move it will be hard for Zuma to defend non-action to the rest of his party when he next attends the AU summit.

With the swell of support for ousting Mugabe rising it looks like Archbishop Desmond Tutu has thrown his (rather large) hat into the ring.

I don't know enough about the Power-Sharing Deal to offer a sound opinion, but the article did say that Power-Sharing wouldn't work with a dictator like Mugabe.

Is an "ousting" of Mugabe realistically possible through political means or will Zimbabwe follow so many of it's fellow African nations and have a shift in power via military force?

no, one country is not enough to convince Mugabe. infact, the Kenyans are themselves having some problems with democracy in their own country. so it will become difficult for them to clean the problems of another person`s country, when their house is infact dirty.secondly, one should now come to the conclusion that, most African leaders are implicitly supporting Mugabe. other wise, why do you think they are not comming forward to publicly wash his dirty linens in public?
