Zimbabwe PM disengages from Unity govt
Harare: Zimbabwe`s Prime Minister says he
is disengaging from the Unity government because of the
"persecution" of a top aide.
Long time opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai said
Friday, "We are not really pulling out officially." He said
his party would not attend Cabinet meetings or engage in
executive work with President Robert Mugabe`s ZANU-PF party.
Tsvangirai said his Movement for Democratic Change party would
continue Parliament activities.
Tsvangirai says the freeze will continue until the
dispute over Roy Bennett`s trial and other issues is resolved.
Bennett is being tried on charges linked to long-discredited
allegations that his party plotted Mugabe`s violent overthrow.
