President Robert Mugabe will this week travel to Lesotho for the volatile southern African country's 50th independence celebrations, just a week after he snubbed a similar invite from his Botswana counterpart, Ian Khama, as hostility between the two leaders intensifies.

Mugabe cancelled a scheduled trip to Botswana after Khama told an international news agency, Reuters, that it was time the 92-year-old Zimbabwean leader steps down due to old age.

Khama said Mugabe had overstayed in power and was now a liability to Zimbabwe and the Sadc region.

But a State media columnist, revealed to be Mugabe's spokesperson, George Charamba, at the weekend intimated that Mugabe would use his Lesotho trip this week as a way to hit back at Khama.
