Zimbabwe intensifies efforts to break impasse


Mugabe and Tsvangirai

Mugabe and Tsvangirai

Zimbabwe’s neighbours have intensified efforts to break an impasse threatening the fragile unity government, as Congolese leader, Joseph Kabila, met with the feuding leaders yesterday. Reports say another date has been set for this week.

Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai suspended co-operation with long-ruling President Robert Mugabe more than two weeks ago, accusing the eighty-five year-old leader of failing to live up to his side of Zimbabwe’s power-sharing deal.

The deadlock has heightened fears about the fate of the unity accord, which is meant to end the deadly political violence that erupted after last year’s failed presidential elections.  President Kabila, who currently heads the Southern African Development Community, SADC, met President Mugabe yesterday for more than four hours before starting talks with Prime Minister Tsvangirai in the evening.
