HARARE - Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe has made a new appeal for unity in government.

HARARE - Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe has made a new appeal for unity in government.

"Are we truly united in the inclusive government? Show it and let us speak with one voice, the voice of Zimbabweans," Mugabe said on Saturday at the funeral of nationalist Ackim Ndlovu.

"Let's not humiliate ourselves any further, let us go to friends who are prepared to work with us on the basis of partnership and not of master and servant."

Mugabe has lashed out at Western nations for refusing to lift sanctions against him and his associates.

Mugabe said some former white farmers would be allocated land.

Tsvangirai has just spent three weeks in Europe and the US, where leaders pledged support but urged reform. - Sapa-AFP
