President Mnangagwa said the unrest facing South Africa must be resolved amicably to ensure peace and stability in the SADC region.

Speaking at the 353 Zanu PF Ordinary session of the Politburo in Harare this morning, the President said there is need to ensure peace and stability in South Africa.

“In the case of South Africa, we wish the current challenges facing our brothers and sisters in that country be soon resolved,” he said.
Over 70 people have been killed in violence that followed the imprisonment of former South African President Jacob Zuma on contempt of court charges.

His imprisonment triggered protests in his home province of KwaZulu Natal which then spread to other areas.

The South African government has since deployed the military to help police restore order.
