FORMER United Nations secretary general Kofi Annan will led a delegation global leaders to Zimbabwe ahead of the country's July 30 elections.

The leaders are expected in Zimbabwe on Thursday.

With the support of the Kofi Annan Foundation, the group will meet local political leaders and actors working for free, fair and transparent elections.

Annan will be joined by Mary Robinson, former President of Ireland and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, as well as Lakhdar Brahimi, former Foreign Minister of Algeria and UN diplomat.

The delegation expects to meet political leaders, the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission, the diplomatic community, civil society representatives and media.

In 2008 the group was denied a visa at Harare airport when they came to try and resolve a political dispute between then president Robert Mugabe and the late MDC-T Morgan Tsvangirai.
