Mutambara blasts Tsvangirai and Mugabe for failing to agree

HARARE – Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe and opposition MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai are to blame for the failure of Zimbabwe's cabinet negotiations, Arthur Mutambara, head of the smaller MDC faction, said on Friday.

"I have no option but to follow these two men who have failed to agree. I saw partisanship and bankrupt ambition disrupting the discourse," he told reporters after four days of talks.

Meanwhile former South African President Thabo Mbeki, who is mediating said, Zimbabwe’s cabinet talks will continue and an agreement is still possible despite four days of inconclusive negotiations.

 

"I wouldn’t say it’s a deadlock. Negotiations are continuing … The matters are capable of solution quite easily," he told reporters.
