Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe said the resignation of South African President Thabo Mbeki was devastating, state media reported on Thursday.

"It's devastating news that President Thabo Mbeki is no longer the President of South Africa, but that is the action of the South African people," the state-controlled Herald newspaper quoted Mugabe as telling reporters in New York.

Mbeki brokered a power-sharing deal earlier this month to end a deep political crisis in Zimbabwe, but Mugabe and opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai are still deadlocked over cabinet posts.
