Robert Mugabe remains under pressure from his regional peers to make democratic reforms before holding elections. But at the Southern African Development Community (SADC) summit on Sunday he escaped criticism from his fellow leaders for planning an early poll.
Beaming broadly, Mugabe bid a cheery farewell to his host President Jacob Zuma after the SADC summit. Tendai Biti, the Finance minister in the power sharing government, also left the Sandton Convention Centre saying he was happy with the result, particularly the determination to have an election free of violence.
The summit did not repeat the harsh language of SADC Security Troika at Livingston in March.
