PRESIDENT Jacob Zuma will discuss what he sees as "deviant behaviour" in Zimbabwe during a visit to Harare this week for talks on the power-sharing government.

ANC general secretaryGwede Mantashe said yesterday that Zuma would be vocal about problems in Zimbabwe, a reversal of the quiet diplomacy practised by former president Thabo Mbeki.

"President Zuma will be more vocal in terms of what we see as deviant behaviour but will still engage."

He said such behaviour included the conduct of last year's presidential run-off amid widespread violence and the continuing harassment of lawmakers from Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai's Movement for Democratic Change. - Sapa-AFP
