Zimbabwean opposition campaigners visit UK

 The Zimbabwean opposition leader, Morgan Tsvangirai, and Rev Levee Kadenge, convener of the Zimbabwean Christian Alliance, will speak at a rally of Zimbabwean exiles in Luton this Saturday 23 June. Their visit comes as crucial discussions are underway about the future of Zimbabwe. Mr Tsvangirai, President of the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC), will be in the UK from 20th June for a few days as part of delegation from the Save Zimbabwe Campaign. Others in the delegation include Lovemore Madhuku, Chair of the National Constitutional Assembly, and the student leader Promise Mkwananzi. The Save Zimbabwe Campaign is the umbrella organisation under which opposition groups in Zimbabwe are campaigning for change. Supported by a coalition of churches, it organised a prayer meeting on 11 March which resulted in the brutal assaults on many opposition activists including Mr Tsvangirai. Saturday's meeting will take place at Lewsey Community Centre, Landrace Road, Luton LU4 0SW from 1 - 4 pm A Vigil, outside the Zimbabwe Embassy, 429 Strand, London, takes place every Saturday from 2-6pm to protest against gross violations of human rights by the current regime in Zimbabwe. Archbishop Pius Ncube led vigil prayers during his last visit to England. For more information see: www.zimvigil.co.uk
