The Southern African Development Community (SADC) is to immediately start it’s intervention on the unfolding political turmoil in Zimbabwe.

The country has dominated headlines since the military seized control last week and placed President Robert Mugabe under house arrest. The conflict was triggered by Mugabe’s decision to remove his deputy Emmerson Mnangagwa from office.

This has also resulted in mass protests calling for Mugabe’s resignation as head of state and parliament to impeach him.

Angola, Zambia and Tanzania as well as SADC chairperson President Jacob Zuma met in Angolan capital Luanda earlier Tuesday to discuss the turmoil in Zimbabwe.

President Zuma will travel to Zimbabwe on Wednesday.
