The Presidency of South Africa, on Wednesday, announced that the President of the country, Jacob Zuma, will no longer travel to Zimbabwe on a mediation mission as previously planned.
Zuma had planned to visit Zimbabwe to mediate a peaceful solution to the Zimbabwean political crisis on Wednesday.
Zuma cancelled the plan following the resignation of Zimbabwean President, Robert Mugabe, on Tuesday. Mugabe’s resignation was announced by Speaker of Parliament, Jacob Mudenda, during a joint sitting of Senate and National Assembly that was debating his impeachment motion.
South Africa’s Presidential Spokesperson, Bongani Ngqulunga, said in a Statement:
“In light with the latest development in Zimbabwe, the visit has now been postponed until further notice.”
