MDC denies deal with Zanu

HARARE – The main wing of the MDC has denied rumours that it is negotiating with Zanu (PF) for a transitional government to take over when Robert Mugabe’s term expires in 2008. Stories have been circulating this week that United Nations secretary general Kofi Annan wants a solution to

the impasse before he retires at the end of the year.
Efforts to get confirmation from Dr Leonard Kapungu, the former representative of the UN Under Secretary-general for Peacekeeping Operations in the SADC region, were unsuccessful, but unofficial sources at the NGO he heads, the Centre for Peace Initiatives in Africa, were unaware of any such initiative.
MDC spokesman Nelson Chamisa denied rumours that Morgan Tsvangirai, had met Kapungu to discuss such a plan. “I am aware that some internet sites have gone to town on this story, but we made it quite clear to them that there is no substance to it,” he said.
