Tsvangirai's new job

Less than a week has passed since Morgan Tsvangirai was sworn in as Prime Minister and both The Chronicle and The Herald are reporting on his busy days. The two newspapers, both owned by Zimpapers, ran practially identical articles.

The new Prime Minister has been appointing new cabinet members and meeting with various officials from both parties. The papers cited Tsvangirai's spokesperson as saying "Prime Minister Tsvangirai also made it clear that they were meeting as Zimbabwean leaders, not as Zanu-PF or MDC leaders, and the ministers should be seen putting forward issues that promote the image of Zimbabwe."

The articles also mentioned Tsvangirai's big plans for education. Only time will tell how long Tsvangirai can work together with Mugabe and his government.
