President Jacob Zuma has sent envoys to Zimbabwe to intervene in the military coup – though the coup leaders are not calling it that – which has effectively toppled President Robert Mugabe. Zuma’s office announced that, in his capacity as Chair of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) he was sending Minister of Defence and Military Veterans, Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula and Minister of State Security Bongani Bongo to Zimbabwe to meet Mugabe and the Zimbabwean Defence Force generals who have seized control of the country.
