Power-Sharing Deal Reached in Zimbabwe
Zimbabwean leaders have negotiated a power-sharing agreement that could end the country's isolation, South African President Thabo Mbeki said Thursday.
Mbeki said that a signing schedule is set for Monday in Harare, SW Radio reported. He would not release any details.
The MDC won a small parliamentary majority. Tsvangirai had said he would only accept an agreement that stripped the 84-year-old Mugabe of most of his power.
MDC members of Parliament mocked Mugabe when he convened parliament in August.
