PRETORIA  – SOUTH African president Jacob Zuma is set to meet Lesotho leaders to discuss the political unrest following an attempted coup last week.

Zuma is expected to hold separate meetings with Lesotho Kingdom’s King Letsie III and coalition leaders to assess the progress in the implementation of the Windhoek Declaration of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) resolutions.

Zuma’s Lesotho visit follows the SADC Ministerial Committee held in Pretoria on 31 August when foreign ministers from Zimbabwe and Namibia converged to address the Lesotho coup.

Zimbabwe’s President, Robert Mugabe, is the chairman of the SADC region while Zuma chairs a troika of SADC on Politics, Defence and Security.

According to Clayson Monyela, Spokesman for the Department of International Relations and Cooperation, Zuma would be accompanied by his Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane.
