new ambassador to Zimbabwe, Vusi Mavimbela.

Diplomatic sources told VOP on Monday Mavimbela is due to start his mission 
in Harare on Friday 25 March, 2011.

He replaces Mlungisi Makhalima whose tour of duty diplomatic sources said

government. Zuma’s facilitation team is due back in Harare this week in what 
weekend papers claimed was meant to diffuse tension in the power-sharing 
arrangement following heavy regional lobbying by the Prime Minister.
