via LATEST: President leaves for Mali | The Herald May 14, 2015

President Mugabe left for Mali today to witness a peace signing ceremony between President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita’s government and Tuareg separatist rebels.

The African Union and Sadc Chair’s delegation comprises Foreign Affairs Minister Simbarashe Mumbengegwi and senior government officials.
He will attend tomorrow’s ceremony in the Malian capital Bamako in his capacity as AU chief and at the invitation of President Keita who dispatched a special envoy to Harare last Saturday.

The peace accord has brought high expectations of lasting peace in the Sahel region, which has endured years of armed conflict.
The Sahel covers parts of Senegal, Algeria, Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso, Nigeria, Chad, Sudan, Niger, South Sudan and Eritrea.
