Former South African President Thabo Mbeki is ready to commence his role as a mediator in Zimbabwe after he finished analysing and studying proposals submitted by different Zimbabwean political parties, Business Times reports.
This was revealed by the counsellor for political affairs at the South African embassy in Harare today. Linda Maso said:
We understand that former President Thabo Mbeki had finished studying the proposals and he is ready to come back. The Thabo Mbeki Foundation has been involved a lot in the matter but we do not want to speculate when he will come back.
I know that Zanu PF, MDC presented their proposals to him as well as the churches. We wait for him, I know that he has a busy schedule.
I know that many people in the country are waiting patiently for the dialogue to resume but we don’t want to speculate on the date and timetable as it is being handled by the Thabo Mbeki Foundation. We are still ready to help with the logistics and we are keeping in touch with the Thabo Mbeki Foundation and our government in Pretoria.
However, the MDC leader told The Standard that President Mnangagwa was ignoring Thabo Mbeki.
