Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe will probably form a new government next month after he returns from a month-long holiday, according to state media.
Mr Mugabe usually spends his leave in the Far East, but he would only spend a small part of his vacation outside Zimbabwe this year, his spokesman said.
Mr Mugabe last week sacked nine ministers and three deputy ministers who lost seats in last March's polls.
He has agreed to share power with the opposition but this has not happened.
Mr Mugabe's Zanu-PF and Morgan Tsvangirai's Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) have been unable to agree on how to divide cabinet posts....
No, because Mugabe won't give him a true share, only token cabinet posts with little power.
