Cape Town – Former South African president Thabo Mbeki met Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe on Wednesday in Harare, a report says, adding the two leaders exchanged views on various matters affecting the African continent.
Mbeki helped broker a now defunct power sharing agreement between the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) and Mugabe's Zanu-PF party following disputed elections in 2008 which left at least 200 people dead.
According to The Herald, Mugabe has often praised Mbeki for being a very patient man, following his mediation in Zimbabwe.
Mbeki was also instrumental in resolving the political crisis in Ivory Coast
and is currently seized with the conflict in South Sudan.
