news - Southern African Grouping Proposes Extraordinary Summit on Zimbabwe

september 8th, 2009

"Leaders of the SouthernAfrican Development Community assembled for a summit Monday in the Democratic Republic of Congo decided not to examine progress by Zimbabwe's national unity government and discuss issues that continue to trouble power-sharing in Harare, but will hold an extraordinary summit in a few weeks focused exclusively on Zimbabwe.

SADC and Zimbabwean sources said the extraordinary summit is likely to be held in Maputo, Mozambique, in about three weeks time.

Notwithstanding this deferral, outgoing SADC Chairman and South African President Jacob Zuma as well as incoming SADC Chairman and DRC President Joseph Kabila urged parties to the 2008 Global Political Agreement for power sharing to implement it fully."
