HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) --

President Robert Mugabe and the opposition have been unable to agree on a unity Cabinet.

President Robert Mugabe and his main rivals signed a power-sharing agreement last month brokered by former South African President Thabo Mbeki. Since then, though, they have made no progress on deciding who would hold which posts in the Cabinet.

Mbeki has agreed to resume mediating. But the two sides met without him Saturday.

Nelson Chamisa, spokesman for main opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai, said Sunday that negotiators were going back to the table to find what he called "a domestic remedy" before deciding whether it was necessary to call back mediators.
