Its not going to happen.

Mugabe is related to Mbeki through marriage, and Zuma is not going to tread on any toes.

Many of the ANC think Mugabe is a hero for taking white owned farms

Well Hillary probably doesn't understand that. IMHO, she was a pretty poor choice for Sec of State anyway, even Bill would have been better. Appears to me she just babbles what she thinks sounds good.

She obviously doesnt have a clue about African culture, politics, tribalism or how these people think.

Zuma will probably nod politely, evade the issue, ignore her, then finally push her out the door.
