Zimbabwe tensions mounting
It appears that tensions continue to mount with regard to the power-sharing government in Zimbabwe. It was reported on Monday that three members of the smaller faction of the MDC, all ministers in the government, were arrested and interrogated over the weekend. Zanu-PF has been agitating for elections to be held this year but other members of the unity government, as well as civil society groups, oppose the move because they claim that the unity government has not yet achieved sufficient stability.
