.....South Africa has in recent months shown signs of exasperation with Mr Mugabe. Aziz Pahad, Deputy Foreign Minister, has spoken of the danger of a "failed state on our doorstep" and has called for "fundamental changes" to Mr Mugabe's economic policies. Official figures issued in Harare suggest that about 3.4 million people -- a quarter of the population -- are now living abroad. Some 1.2million are believed to have fled to South Africa.
