World: Zimbabwe PM Morgan Tsvangirai boycotts the “unity” government

  • He claims that Robert Mugabe’s party hasn’t budged. Morgan Tsvangirai has been through the wringer trying to improve Zimbabwe and its laughable economy. He’s been beaten before. His wife died in a car crash. But after the arrest of Tsvangirai’s nominated government appointee Roy Bennett on terrorism charges, he’s had enough for now. Tsvangirai and his MDC party have “disengaged” from the unity government with Robert Mugabe. This comes at a bad time for Zimbabwe, which is trying to raise aid money to improve the country’s fragile economic state. source
