PUBLISHED IN INTERNAL QUESTION PAPER
NO 14 OF 20 MAY 2005
Mr W J Seremane (DA) to ask the Minister of Foreign
Whether she agrees with the statements made by Cyril Ramaphosa at
an African investment conference that (a) the Zimbabwean economy is under so much
stress it needs some kind of intervention, (b) instability and conflict within
one African country has a destabilising impact on its neighbours and an unsettling
effect on potential investors and (c) the Nepad peer review mechanism would have
no chance of success with countries like Zimbabwe; if not, why not; if so what
kind of intervention will the Government take in Zimbabwe?
The honourable member understands our foreign policy towards Zimbabwe.
