harare - The new Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa feels nothing for a coalition government with the opposition. 'Currently there is no need for this,' he said after a meeting with opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai.
Mnangagwa paid a visit to the residence of the opposition leader, who suffers from colon cancer. The president said afterwards to see journalists no salvation in a government of national unity. He also stated that Tsvangirai will soon return to South Africa for medical checks.
Mnangagwa came to power after the resignation of his former political boss, Robert Mugabe. That 93-year-old leader had to clear the field in November under great pressure. The army intervened when the influential Mnangagwa was pushed aside as vice president.
