This is a big step forward towards a better Zimbabwe. Owing to recent comments and moves made by Mugabe and officials within his party, most if not all people would have ever imagined him entering into talks about a power sharing agreement. Mugabe, Tsvangirai and Mutambara have very different views on what they envisage for Zimbabwe and this fact will not make talks easy. Hopefully these talks will be fruitful and that all parties involved come up with and eventually implement steps that will lead to Zimbabwe getting back on its feet and well on the way to political, social and economic glory. The next few weeks will tell whether or not a resolution will be reached on the crisis in Zimbabwe.
