A source among the negotiators would not shed light on the progress but was confident that the discussions would be concluded today.

 

 

The report on the discussions of the outstanding issues will be presented to the principals of the three political parties in the GPA. 

 

A copy of the report that is being prepared from the principals is expected to be given to the facilitator, President Jacob Zuma of South Africa for his perusal before he meets the SADC organ on politics defence and security and Mozambican President Cde Armando Guebuza.

 

ZANU-PF has expressed concern over the lack of significant strides on the part of the MDC-T towards the removal of the illegal western sanctions.

 

Despite calling for the removal of sanctions earlier this month, Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai recently told western diplomats at his party’s headquarters at Harvest House on the 10th of this month that his position on sanctions has not changed creating confusion on the issue in the negotiating process.

 

SADC facilitator in the negotiations President Zuma has since called on the west to remove the illegal sanctions saying they are hampering the effective functioning of the inclusive government.
