PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe left Harare Wednesday for South Africa where he will attend the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation.

The forum will be co-chaired by Chinese President Xi Jinping who also arrived in South Africa Wednesday.

The Chinese leader passed through Harare, making a two-day historic stop during which he signed several economic deals with the Zimbabwean government.

Mugabe is current chair of the African Union (AU) and has attracted criticism from rivals over his foreign trips this year.

Before hosting President Xi, Mugabe attended the United Nations climate talks in Paris, France.

He had also just returned from Turkey where he attended the G20 meeting of the world’s most advanced economies.

Although Zimbabwe is not a member of the group, Mugabe was invited in his capacity as AU chairman.

Opposition parties however, say the foreign trips are a huge drain on the fiscus at a time the government is short of money in a struggling economy.
