    TRANSCRIPT: NKOMO: "The future of our country is at stake. The future of our people is vital. And therefore I would like to remind you that in discussing the vital matters you will be discussing this afternoon, consider this seriously, that whatever you decide will determine the course of history of our young republic. It will determine the vital issue of peace and stability in Zimbabwe and indeed peace and stability in the subcontinent of Africa."

    REPORTER: "Do you expect the coalition still to be in office?"

    NKOMO: "I don't think so, no"

    REPORTER: "Did you ask the Prime Minister?"

    NKOMO: "A coalition is a coalition when the leaders are in there. When no leaders, it becomes a working, just a working arrangement."

    REPORTER: "So you consider what we have now is a working arrangement?"

    NKOMO: "It is a working arrangement."

    Reporter: "How do you now regard the situation as regards a one-party state do you think this, the events of the past few days have brought this closer?"

    Nkomo: "I don't think so, no. You've got to take the elements in this country into account, and the movement by one party, to a one party state, does not take the elements into account, and therefore you cannot have a one party state based on the decision of one party withdrawn the support of all the elements in this country."
