zimbabwe deal talks being finalised
Reliable sources have it that the Zimbabwe deal is close to being completed as the leaders of the opposition sat down with Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe on Monday in Harare under the eye of a SADC leadership team.
A source very close to events provided information to the effect that both sides had made considerable concessions to come to a deal on the allocation of ministries.
However this could not be confirmed by another source and therefore cannot be accepted as fact.
Both sides however seem to realise that there is more to lose from the failure to produce a deal as walking away at this moment could prove costly.
