Zuma in bid to rescue Lesotho peace deal

South Africa President Jacob Zuma (R) speaks with Lesotho's King Letsie III at the Royal palace on September 9, 2014 in MaseruRival Lesotho leaders vowed to resolve an 11-day crisis that has spurred calls for regional military intervention in the tiny African nation, after South Africa brokered talks on Tuesday. The sparring factions agreed to hold further negotiations and present a concrete date for reopening Lesotho’s parliament to South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma on Friday. “We had very frank and good kind of discussions,” said Zuma after the three-hour meeting, aimed at keeping a week-old peace deal alive. “We’re just about to get there,” said Lesotho Prime Minister Thomas Thabane, who suspended parliament in June and has struggled to preserve his coalition government — a rarity in African politics.
