The Herald argues there is no basis for a Government of National Unity (GNU) as was the case in 2008 when the elections produced a hung Parliament.
The Herald editor argues that the opposition is using the economic challenges born of sanctions as a basis for a GNU. The article also argues America will not lift sanctions on Zimbabwe once Nelson Chamisa once he joins Government. The article also argues the MDC-Alliance leadership has not shown sufficient maturity for any serious negotiations. Below is an excerpt of the Editorial Comment:
The unwelcome subject of another unity government keeps being foisted on Zimbabweans by the distractive opposition MDC-Alliance of Nelson Chamisa. It makes no difference that they want to disguise their fantasy as a transitional authority. The long and short of it is that the MDC-Alliance leadership is desperate to rig its way into Government after losing the July 30 harmonised elections.
The private media are desperate to give the fantasy unity government a life it doesn’t have, because there is no basis for it as was the case in 2008 when the elections produced a hung Parliament. The only excuses now for trying to imbue this fantasy with life are that, confronted with economic challenges born of sanctions, a few misguided people dream that America will remove Zidera once Chamisa joins Government, or claims by Chamisa himself that he has miraculous solutions to the country’s problems. There’s no reason to believe either.
The Government of National Unity was a coalition government between the three major political parties in Zimbabwe formed on 13 February 2009 after the signing of the Global Political Agreement. Read More About Government of National Unity
