      OBJECTIVES OF SACP DELEGATION VISIT TO ZIMBABWE (8-12 DECEMBER 2003)

      The South African Communist Party's delegation to Zimbabwe, led by
      General
      Secretary Blade Nzimande, intends to interact with a range of key
      Zimbabwean formations, among them the ruling party, ZANU-PF, the major
      opposition formation, the MDC, and key social movements and civil
      society
      organisations including the Zimbabwean Congress of Trade Unions and
      faith-based structures.

      The SACP visit has been fully canvassed with our South African allies,
      the
      ANC and COSATU, and colleagues in government.

      The visit occurs within a context of ongoing South African and
      Zimbabwean
      interaction and solidarity efforts in many of which the SACP has been an
      active participant.

      The specific objectives of the visit will be:
      1. To enrich, at first hand, our undestanding of the strategic
      perpspectives and concerns of the key political and social protagonists
      in
      Zimbabwe.

      2. To focus attention on the plight of the Zimbabwean working
      class, the urban and rural poor, including millions of Zimbabwean women
      in
      the context of the current political impasse and deepening economic
      crisis.

      3. To discuss perspectives on fostering wide-ranging intra-Zimbabwean
      dialogue and negotiation, and to raise concerns about vesting undue
      expectations in narrow "elite-pactng"; and

      4. To discuss with all key protagonists how best to take forward
      solidarity mobilisation for Zimbabwe in South Africa.

      The SACP delegation will include:
      - Blade Nzimande - General Secretary
      - Jeremy Cronin - Deputy General Secretary
      - Lindelwa Dunjwa - member of the Central Committee
      - Themba Mthembu - KwaZulu Natal Provincial Secretary
      - Lucian Segami - Member of the Steering Committee of the Young
      Communist
      League
