S. Africa Opposition Presses Mbeki on Zimbabwe

South African opposition parties have said that President Thabo Mbeki should speak out and condemn Zimbabwe’s destruction of homes and informal businesses, in order to defend Africa’s credibility at the Group of Eight summit that is scheduled for next month. But there is no sign that Mr. Mbeki's administration is ready to change its policy of quiet diplomacy.

Bernard Mandizvidza in Johannesburg filed a report on the controversy to the Voice of America’s Studio 7 for Zimbabwe.
