PM Morgan Tsvangirai
Via BBC News
Zimbabwe’s opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai has been sworn in as prime minister in a unity government with President Robert Mugabe.
Mr Tsvangirai won the first round of last year’s presidential election – but he withdrew from the run-off citing violence against his supporters.
However he later agreed to share power with Mr Mugabe.
Problems facing the new government include a cholera epidemic, a collapsed economy and a 90% unemployment rate.
I am sceptical and afraid for the citizens of Zimbabwe. How long will this “peaceful” union last before it all hits the fan again?
The country is in enough turmoil as it is, so I just hope and pray this arrangement works out for the best.
I wish you all the luck in the world Mr Tsvangiri. Lord knows you are going to need it!
