Prominent figures, including former UN secretary general Kofi Annan, believe Zimbabwe could soon collapse due to a political and economic crisis, South Africa's ANC leader Jacob Zuma said on Monday.

"They believe the situation is very bad. They believe things could collapse in a few months time in Zimbabwe," Zuma told reporters after meeting Annan, former US President Jimmy Carter and other prominent figures.

Annan, Carter and Nelson Mandela's wife, Graca Machel, are among a group of prominent figures and former statesmen called The Elders. They were barred by Zimbabwe from visiting to assess a humanitarian crisis there this weekend.
