US President Barack Obama called for Zimbabwe's government to cease harassment and implement reforms ahead of landmark elections expected later this year.

"Harassment of citizens and groups needs to stop and reform needs to move forward. so people can cast their votes in elections that are fair and free and credible," he said during a visit to neighbouring South Africa.
