The agency's director of operations for Southern Africa, Nicolas Bwakira, said in Lusaka on Friday that the agency did not, at the moment, have the required funds for the exercise. He appealed to the international community to assist with the necessary funding.

The delay raises further difficulties for the planned withdrawal of the United Nations mission, which is to be addressed in the next UN Secretary General's report, due out by 10 February.
