Zimbabwe: Government of National Unity?

Zimbabweans speaking about Government of National Unity: “We’ve received a flood of replies, particularly via SMS, with voices against a government of national unity out numbering those in favour of it by about 10:1.”

    do you think that two people who can’t stand to be in the same room together can form a government of national unity. besides , not that i look down upon Tsvangirai, the sitting president would likley get his say all the way. at the end of april the herald printed a story which said that the president R.G.M was proposing a Gnu with him as the president. that is a definite NO!NO! what the electorate voted for in the 29 March elections was a reflection of wat they felt about him. the presence of the president in the driving seat is what the people do not want. if its a GNU , then let Tsvangirai be the president. but i do not think that R.G.M would agree to take orders from someone whom he has labelled with every insult a politician is allowed in the political manual. HE IS A VERY PROUD PERSON! but then we are also a proud nation who have only our dignity to flaunt to the world now. Anyway why was this not suggested in 2002 when he had won by default according to some press reports if he was interested in our welfare
