Harare-Former Deputy Prime Minister in the Government of National Unity (GNU) Professor Arthur Mutambara has revealed that the current set up does not favour another power sharing deal.
In an interview with South African television station SABC News last week, during a review of his book, “The Path to Power — In Search for the Elusive Zimbabwe Dream” Arthur Mutambara.
Mutambara said Zanu-PF has the majority in parliament. He also said South Africa, SADC and the AU have endorsed Mnangagwa as legitimate making it difficult.
“Number one, the opposition is not challenging Parliament, ZANU- PF controls two thirds majority in Parliament. In our case, we the opposition controlled the majority and ZANU- PF were in the minority.”
“Secondly, when we said Mugabe is illegitimate after the run-off we had the support of South Africa, SADC and the African Union. Unfortunately in this situation, where there is a challenge to the legitimacy by (President) Mnangagwa, the South Africans have endorsed Mnangagwa, SADC have endorsed Mnangagwa and the AU have endorsed Mnangagwa which makes it very difficult to operationalise the challenge to the legitimacy of Mnangagwa” he said
Many Zimbabweans have been anticipating a unity government following a disputed election that led the main opposition MDC Alliance to contest election results announced by the electoral body ZEC.
The constitutional court upheld the results that declared Emmerson Mnangagwa winner of the July 30 plebiscite.
