Mugabe limits lifespan of unity government
Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe said that the unity government should be ended in February 2011, as it was meant to last only two years. "If it is a question of just a couple more months, then I will have no objections, but to give it another life of six months or one year, no, no, no," Mugabe was quoted as saying in the Herald newspaper. Dates for next year's election have not yet been set, although Mugabe reportedly favours a mid-year election. Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai has not yet commented on Mugabe's statement.
