Zimbabwe's main opposition leader has returned home for talks on the deadlock in a power-sharing agreement reached last September but never implemented.

Morgan Tsvangirai flew into Harare on Saturday after two months abroad. He plans talks with his Movement for Democratic Change on whether the party should pull out of the proposed national unity government.

Despite the power-sharing agreement, President Robert Mugabe's party has grabbed nearly all the key ministries, appointed provincial leaders and reappointed the Central Bank governor blamed for the country's dizzying inflation officially 231 million percent.

The presidents of South Africa and Mozambique, and mediator Thabo Mbeki, the former South African leader, come to Harare Monday to try to resolve the impasse.

Tsvangirai's party is not expected to make any decision before Monday's meeting.
