Mugabe, Tsvangirai face-off
Cape Town – Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe and Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai are expected to hold an explosive meeting amid reports the premier is seething with anger over leakages of confidential communication between them, News Day reported on Monday.
This, according to the report, follows the leakage and subsequent publication of a confidential letter by Tsvangirai to President Mugabe and Deputy Prime Minister Arthur Mutambara.
The letter was published by the State-controlled Sunday Mail and other publications like the Zimbabwe Mail.
The report said the meeting will be the first between the two protagonists this year, and is expected to deal with the leakages of confidential exchanges between the inclusive government principals, appointments of service chiefs, and reforming the security sector, among other contentious issues.
President Mugabe last week reportedly cancelled the National Security Council meeting after Tsvangirai did not turn up, protesting the composition of attendees.
