South Africa has hailed the progress made in the constitution making process saying differences dogging the three political parties to the Global Political Agreement can be resolved if the parties involved work together in the best interest of the people.
The remarks were made by South Africa’s Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Vusi Mavimbela when he paid a courtesy call on Acting President Joice Mujuru at her Munhumutapa offices in Harare.
The two discussed bilateral relations existing between the two countries.
Mr Mavimbela told journalists after the meeting that Acting President Mujuru expressed gratitude to the African Union for putting women on the world map following the election of Dr Nkhosazana Dlamini-Zuma as African Union Commission Chairperson.
He said South Africa as the facilitator of the GPA is happy with progress made in the constitution making process ahead of the SADC summit set for Mozambique on the 17th of this month.
The Egyptian ambassador, Mr Bassem Khalil also paid a courtesy call on Acting President Mujuru and pledged his country’s commitment to launch a joint commission that will foster bilateral and trade relations with Zimbabwe following the election of the new Egyptian government.
Under the joint Commission, Mr Khalil said his country is willing to engage in an exchange programme to share expertise in agriculture and trade in a move that he said is expected to see Egyptian products hitting the local market in the near future.
