Johannesburg - The South African Broadcasting Corporation on Tuesday reported that the presidents of South Africa and Angola will travel to Zimbabwe on Wednesday to meet with "stakeholders" in the political crisis, including President Robert Mugabe and the military.
South Africa, Angola and two other regional countries held a summit on the crisis Tuesday in Angola.
President Jacob Zuma, in his capacity as Southern African Development Community (SADC) chairperson, said he noted with great concern the unfolding political situation in Zimbabwe.
"The Summit of Organ Troika plus SADC chair... resolved that Zuma, João Manuel Gonçalves Lourenço, in his capacity as Chairperson of the Organ on Politics Defence and Security Cooperation, will immediately undertake a mission to Zimbabwe on November 22, 2017 to assess the situation."
This announcement comes as Zimbabwe's Parliament on Tuesday afternoon begun impeachment proceedings against Mugabe, who is accused of allowing his wife to "usurp" power and of being too old to rule.
It is not clear how long impeachment would take, though the ruling party has said it could vote Mugabe out as early as Wednesday.
