Zimbabwe: Mugabe and Tsvangirai discuss Roy Bennett

President Mugabe was on Sunday expected to meet with Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai to discuss issues pertaining to the appointment of permanent secretaries and try to define the roles of the Ministry of Media, Information and Publicity and the Ministry of Information Communication Technology. The two will also discuss the issue of Roy Bennett who is in custody facing charges of possessing dangerous weapons for acts of insurgency, banditry, terrorism or sabotage. Speaking to journalists yesterday, the presidential spokesperson, Cde George Charamba confirmed the meeting adding that the Ministers of Media, Information and Publicity and Information Communication Technology have been asked to make submissions regarding the roles of their ministries. “The principals meet almost every week and yes, they are meeting on Monday to discuss those issues” he said. Last week, President made appointments of permanent secretaries but Mr Tsvangirai objected to this saying he had not been consulted. There are disagreements over who between the Minister of Media, Information and Publicity, Cde Webster Shamu and the Minister of Information Communication Technology, Mr Nelson Chamisa should control the posts and telecommunications sector.
