Vice President Kembo Mohadi has refuted media reports that there are ongoing talks between ZANU PF and MDC for the formation of a Government of National Unity.
Mohadi said there are no such talks taking place. In an interview with the Herald in Bulawayo yesterday, VP Mohadi had this to say
We haven’t heard anything of that sort or an approach from those that would want a Government of National Unity with us.
But if they want to discuss with us they can come, but certainly not on a GNU because we have got the mandate emanating from the two-thirds majority in Parliament. We can do it alone unlike in 2008 where we had a sort of hung Parliament. This time there isn’t going to be that kind of arrangement.
We want unity, which is one of our mandates to get the people of Zimbabwe together and speak with one voice, work and progress together and this is important. In fact, we want them (opposition parties) to be part of Zimbabwe. We don’t want them to be left out.
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
