Jacob Zuma Cancels His Trip To Zimbabwe

President Jacob Zuma will no longer travel to Harare in the Republic of Zimbabwe today, on Wednesday.

The SADC Organ Troika Plus SADC Chairperson Summit that met in Angola today, 21 November, had taken a decision that the SADC Chairperson, President Zuma and the Chairperson of the SADC Organ on Politics, Defence and Security Cooperation, President Joao Lourenco of Angola should travel to Zimbabwe to assess the situation on behalf of SADC.

The visit has now been postponed until further notice.

This after Mugabe resigned as Zimbabwe’s president on Tuesday, shortly after parliament began an impeachment process to end his nearly four decades of rule.

The 93-year old hang on for a week after an army takeover from his own ruling ZANU-PF party, which also told him to leave power.

Wild celebrations broke out at a joint sitting of parliament when Speaker Jacob Mudenda announced Mugabe’s resignation and suspended the impeachment procedure.
