Naledi Pandor's spokesperson Lunga Ngqengelele says the minister has been in conversation with Zimbabwean officials on the matter.

Department of International Relations and Cooperation (Dirco) on Thursday said the South African government had noted with concern to reports related to human rights violations in the Republic of Zimbabwe and would offer help if need be.

This comes after South Africa came under pressure to say something significant about the humanitarian crisis unfolding in Zimbabwe.
