GNU To Continue-Tsvangirai

“You may have come across or heard that it’s going to expire,” Tsvangirai told visiting Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi, referring to the power-sharing agreement.

“It has not expired. The inclusive government is still there.”

Veteran leader and Zanu (PF)  leader Mugabe has been pushing for new elections to follow the two-year anniversary of the compromise government despite a deadlock over a new constitution that was supposed to pave the way for the next polls.

“The inclusive government has made notable progress although it has been affected by lack of finance,” Tsvangirai said.

“We hope that the current process of constitution-making will be completed soon.”

Yang, who is visiting Zimbabwe to buttress ties between the two countries, had earlier met Mugabe and several government officials.

Mugabe, Tsvangirai and Deputy Prime Minister Arthur Mutambara who was then leader of the smaller MDC faction formed the power-sharing government in 2008 to mend an agro-based economy which was on the verge of total collapse.
