    October 08, 2008

    The African Union (AU) and the Southern African Development Community (SADC) commend President Kgalema Motlanthe and the Government of the Republic of South Africa for reaffirming their support to the continued role of former President Thabo Mbeki as the SADC mandated mediator in the Zimbabwe inter- party political dialogue.

    We underscore our appreciation of the tireless efforts of President Mbeki, which culminated in the signing of the Agreement on resolving the challenges facing Zimbabwe, at a ceremony held in Harare on 15 September 2008, and express our confidence in his ability to assist the Zimbabwean parties to effectively implement the commitments they have entered into.

    We encourage the parties to live up to the expectations of the people of Zimbabwe and the international community by fully and faithfully implementing the Agreement they have reached, in particular through the early establishment of a new Government of as provided therein.

    As guarantors of the implementation of the Agreement, both the AU and SADC will spare no effort in supporting its full and effective implementation.
