President Jacob Zuma met Zimbabwean Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai at his home in Nkandla yesterday amid fears that the country's inclusive government is collapsing.
Zuma's spokesperson Zizi Kodwa says Zuma met Tsvangirai in his capacity as the Southern African Development Community's facilitator in Zimbabwe to discuss the deepening political crisis.
Media reports that Zimbabwe's government faces collapse as the clampdown on Tsvangirai's MDC by President Robert Mugabe intensifies.
The week ended in dramatic fashion with reports that several MDC ministers and members of parliament face arrest, allegedly to prevent them from voting this week for the position of speaker.
