President Jacob Zuma is in Zimbabwe to represent Belarus at a Zimbabwe conference on the trade in African carbon credits, according to the organizers of the event.

Zuma is expected to deliver a ‘special presentation’ on behalf of the Belarusian African Trade Organization on Friday, according to the agenda of the Africa Voluntary Carbon Credits Market Forum.

“There is a very big role he has to play at that conference,” Nkululeko Sibanda, spokesman for the event, said without elaborating.

Zuma has previously presided over a UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in 2011.

The former president is facing a corruption trial in South Africa related to a state arms deal, which he has denied any wrongdoing.

President Zuma is a board member of the Belarusian African Trade Organization.
Zimbabwe has close ties with Belarus. President Alexander Lukashenko visited the Zimbabwe, earlier this year amid pledges of agricultural and industrial investments.
