    Like I have mentioned before, the drama is now starting to unfold. The boycotting of the swearing in ceremony of the Prime Minister by the Security Chiefs signals some form of protest or contempt. Some declared during the election campaigns that they will never salute Tsvangirai, and now the political situation has changed, by virtue of his office,they have to salute him or face disciplinary action.The media will be out there to take the first photograph of Augustine Chihuri or Chiwenga saluting the Prime Minister.Chiwenga's wife threatened Tsvangirai with assault some time at Macro, calling him all sorts, that was the politics of that time, but now things have changed, the country needs healing, and that spirit of harmony should be exhibited first from the top, supporters and followers will follow suit.We know there is deep rooted genuine animosity between these new partners in a marriage of convenience.
    On the issue of Security, it is normal practice the world over that the government provides security personnel for their top government officials.Prime Minister Tsvangirai can not hire or employ his own private security, without undermining the security of a government in which he is Prime Minister. If he doubts their competency or loyalt or anything he has to work towards improving it than dumping it.You can not throw away your own child in preference of a neighbour's. You have to improve yours.But what makes it complicated is the fact that the security chiefs have demonstrated some form of contempt or bitterness or some negative attitude towards the Prime Minister, hence can they be relied on when they have to send security personnel to the same Prime Minister. What instructions will they give to their surbordinates who are supposed to meet the security needs of the Prime Minister?. National healing should start from the top, they should demonstrate that it is possible to have good working relations with members from the opposition. They should shake off the tag of MDC Minister, Zanu PF Minister, etc, they should be called Zim gvt ministers. They are in a gvt to serve all Zimbabweans not MDC supporters or Zanu PF supporters. Even if his security is staffed with undercover operatives, they are his operatives as Prime Minister, he should accept it so as to dismiss the suspicion that he might do some undercover dealings in the Prime Minister's office.
