Robert Mugabe not serious about unity government – Biti
HARARE – Zimbabwe's opposition MDC said on Tuesday President Robert Mugabe's ruling ZANU-PF was not ready to enter into a "genuine" cooperative government under a power-sharing deal.
MDC Secretary-General Tendai Biti said the allocation of ministries was still being discussed in talks on forming a cabinet. He said the opposition party was committed to reaching an agreement but would not accept a bad deal.
A regional meeting failed to break a deadlock threatening Zimbabwe’s power-sharing accord on Monday, prompting the 15-nation Southern African Development Community (SADC) to call for an urgent full-scale summit on the crisis.
SADC said on Monday the allocation of the interior ministry, which oversees the police force, was a sticking point in negotiations.
