Mutambara to stay put


Deputy Prime Minister Arthur Mutambara today said he is not quitting his post though he was replaced as party leader by secretary Welshman Ncube. “I have no intention whatsoever to leave the position of Deputy Prime Minister in the Inclusive Government. I will not abdicate from my national responsibilities in order to satisfy narrow party-political aspirations. In our national Constitution, there is no facility for a political party to recall a sitting DPM. In the GPA, while there is provision to reshuffle Ministers after consultation among the three Principals, there is no provision to remove a GPA principal. Neither is there an instrument to remove a sitting DPM, more so when he or she is also a Principal,” Mutambara said in a statement.
