should call for 5W-30. Either syn/non syn. I'm sure where you are 40 would be OK also... 40 wt. though isn't energy conserving.

Data for Harare suggests a rather moderate climate range in your country, I'd suggest 10W-30 engine oil.

Synthetic oil of the correct viscosity can be used. You may also find this guidance to be useful.
