Unity govt dysfunctional: Mugabe

HARARE - President Robert Mugabe yesterday reiterated his statements that the coalition government was so dysfunctional that it is even failing to pay its workers.

The Zanu PF leader said this at the opening of a Research and Intellectual Expo and said it was time to call time off this uneasy power-sharing administration with Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s Movement for Democratic Change.

“The government cannot continue to say that we do not have money. Since the beginning of the year we have been saying there is no money and this means the government is not functioning,” said Mugabe.

His comments, however resonate with other coalition government players such as Finance minister Tendai Biti, who recently lamented the dysfunctional state of the inclusive government and blamed on constant bickering and policy inconsistencies.

Mugabe, who was addressing several intellectuals and scholars drawn from across the country, called upon institutions of higher learning to help contribute in efforts to resuscitate the economy, especially struggling industries.

“For us to resuscitate our industries, colleges, polytechnics and industries you should lead the way in this endeavour,” he said.
