New British Ambassador

HARARE - Dr Andrew Pocock, 50, will be Britain's new ambassador to Zimbabwe. He replaces Rob Pullen who has been recalled to London after only 18 month in the post for what have been officially described as 'personal reasons'. However, according to informed sources, his wife was said to be rather 'u

ndiplomatic’ in view of the very delicate nature of relations between the two countries. Pocock, a career diplomat for 25 years, is currently ambassador to Tanzania. As former Head of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s southern Africa desk, he is well-informed about Zimbabwe, and seen as something of a rising star. His former postings have included Lagos, Washington and Canberra. – Own correspondent
