Zimbabwe's Prime Minister Works With Mugabe


Zimbabwe's Prime Minister, Morgan Tsvangirai, is meeting with U.S President Barack Obama on Friday as he seeks cooperation from the international community for the unity administration beside opponent President Robert Mugabe.


Tsvangirai and Tendai Biti, his finance minister, have tried to encourage the West to annihilate the "restrictive measures" against Zimbabwe now that the government is working toward economic and democratic improvements.

 

Many are skeptical about Tsvangirai's decision of joining Mugabe in a unity government. However, Tsvangirai insists that it is good to "work with a non-democratic regime as a transition to full democracy." He further expressed confidence in Mugabe, stating that "in his twilight years he has realized he has to end his life as the founding father of the nation, and not the villain of the nation."
