S.Africa close to brokering Zimbabwe deal: Report
South Africa is close to brokering a deal that would see Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe and opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai negotiate a unity government, a South African newspaper said on Tuesday.

The report in Business Day came as African leaders prepared to discuss the Zimbabwe crisis at an African Union summit in Sharm El-Sheikh amid calls for the continent to condemn Mugabe for holding a one-candidate presidential election marred by violence.

"The plan involves getting Mugabe and Tsvangirai to work together to implement agreements between ZANU-PF and the Movement for Democratic Change made in January. These include a new constitution and other reforms," the paper said.
