Mugabe, Tsvangirai set to prolong unity govt

Mugabe, Tsvangirai set to prolong unity govt
Published: 06 January 2012 (636 Views)
ZANU PF and the MDC formations are set to renegotiate the GPA in 2012 with a view to extending the life of the coalition government as the parties fail to agree on implementation of minimum political and legislative reforms necessary for the holding of free and fair polls.

The shaky coalition government has been on the edge for the better part of 2011 with the partners constantly squabbling and threatening to walk out over disputed constitutional, media and security sector reforms as well as the amendments of Posa and the Electoral Act, among other issues.

Zanu PF appears to be trapped in a time warp and has publicly announced that it will not concede to any further reforms except the constitution and referendum.

Despite having failed to hold elections in 2011, Zanu PF continued to grandstand at its conference in Bulawayo declaring that polls would be held in the first half of 2012 with or without the agreed reforms.
