This continuously weakening stance caused by internal divisions within the ranks of the government is a great disservice to the nation. Were the government meaning business, it would have acted decisively to stop disruptive forces within its ranks. It would have acted about succession to the prime ministership at the appropriate time without opening up the doors to speculation about the pros and cons of the decision. It would not have allowed a PM torn between his Minister of Good Governance and his Minister of Finance to expose a fatal flaw that the opposition is fully exploiting to resurface in popular esteem. All this ends up showing in public that the government is not in control of itself. Such a situation can be extremely damning for the government if it were to endure.
