Zimbabwe's ex-opposition mulls break with gov't

Zimbabwe's ex-opposition mulls break with gov't

Zimbabwe's former opposition party says it is considering "disengagement" from the unity government, but stopped short of withdrawing from its partnership with President Robert Mugabe.
The Movement for Democratic Change complains about continued harassment of Mugabe's opponents and disputes over his unilateral appointments of top officials.
MDC Vice President Thokozani Khupe says the latest problem came with Mugabe rescheduling Monday's weekly Cabinet meeting because he was going to be out of town. Khupe says that was a snub to her party's leader, who should have chaired the meeting in Mugabe's absence.
Khupe says her party will boycott the rescheduled Cabinet meeting but remains a part of the coalition. She says it is the MDC's "constitutional right to consider disengagement."
