Mutambara to stay as Deputy Prime Minister


President Robert Mugabe today said former Movement for Democratic Change leader Arthur Mutambara will remain Deputy Prime Minister because recalling him was fraught with legal complications.  “It creates legal matters, it complicates issues. They were able to remove him politically, but legally he was sworn in as a Member of Parliament. I swore him in as Deputy Prime Minister. It’s up to him if he wants to resign, but if he refuses, well, we are stuck, but the Global Agreement will go ahead,” Mugabe said.  Mutambara was replaced by former party secretary general Welshman Ncube at the party congress this month. He did not stand for re-election.
