Jacob Zuma, leader of South Africa's ruling African National Congress, urged regional leaders yesterday to "force" a resolution of the stand-off that has paralysed Zimbabwe.

Signalling an end to the "quiet diplomacy" favoured by Thabo Mbeki, South Africa's former president, Mr Zuma said: "As far as I'm concerned, [the Southern African Development Community] must make those Zimbabweans reach an agreement."

The 15-nation grouping is due to meet tomorrow in an effort to end a dispute between Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe's president, and Morgan Tsvangirai, the opposition leader,over the allocation of cabinet posts.
