HARARE - President Robert Mugabe's Zanu-PF party yesterday rejected Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai's call for a range of serious disputes between their respective parties to be judged by governments in the region.
Zimbabwe's three-month-old coalition government has made no progress on issues of human rights reforms and governance.
Tsvangirai, head of the former opposition Movement for Democratic Change, on Sunday announced that the party was calling on the Southern African Development Community to mediate between it and Zanu-PF.
MDC officials accuse Mugabe of stonewalling on issues such as the continued arrests of activists, the invasions of white-owned farms and Mugabe's unilateral appointments of his cronies as head of the central bank and as attorney-general. - Sapa-dpa
