Pretoria - President Jacob Zuma will pay a working visit to Zimbabwe on Saturday, the international relations department said.

“South Africa and Zimbabwe share common historical and geographical bonds as demonstrated by the strong economic co-operation between the two countries,” spokesman Clayson Monyela said in a statement on Friday.

“The economies of the two countries are historically interlinked.”

Zimbabwe was one of South Africa's top trading partners on the continent.

While in Zimbabwe, Zuma would attend President Robert Mugabe's daughter's wedding, Monyela said.
