STABILITY in Zimbabwe can only be guaranteed if another Government of National Unity (GNU) is established, Speaker of the National Assembly Jacob Mudenda said Thursday.

Mudenda, a top Zanu-PF official, was speaking at a church service held in honour of late Glen View South MP, Vimbai Tsvangirai-Java who succumbed to injuries sustained in a car accident last month.

Tsvangirai-Java was eldest daughter to the late former Prime Minister and opposition MDC founding leader Morgan Tsvangirai.

Delivering his condolence message to thousands of mainly opposition party supporters who at some point drowned his speech in a cacophony of boos before MDC leader Nelson Chamisa brought order, Mudenda appealed for unity within the country's politics.

"We enjoyed serenity of politics during the GNU. That spirit must come back. It must come back.

"I pray to the church, that the church must be on their knees each day of their lives and pray for the unity for the people of Zimbabwe," Mudenda said to rapturous applause.

Mudenda added: "I believe that the spirit of the late Dr Tsvangirai which we celebrate through her daughter today shall be reflected in our national politics.

"Don't forget that when the Government of National Unity was formed, Dr Tsvangirai did not look at positional politics, he looked at national politics and what that brings to the people of Zimbabwe."
