Talks over President Mugabe’s succession continue

Chief Correspondent

Last-ditch talks have been taking place in Zimbabwe’s capital Harare to try to find a way to end Robert Mugabe’s 37-year rule.

Photographs have emerged of Mr Mugabe meeting the army commander who put him under house arrest. The photos did not show first lady Grace Mugabe whose attempts to secure greater powers for herself are seen as a motive for the military action.

Mr Mugabe also met a South African delegation and a Catholic priest at the state house who were pushing for a resolution to the political turmoil.
