The newsletter by Ted Lockwood discusses the Zimbabwe African National Union (ZANU), Zimbabwe African People's Union (ZAPU), and former members of UANC (United African National Council). Lockwood reports that the ZANU (PF) congress is expected to reaffirm Marxism-Leninism as its ideology. In accordance with the Lancaster House agreement, elections are expected to be held in February 1985. The newsletter discusses Gweru, Kwekwe, Midlands and Mashonaland West. It also discusses Robert Mugabe, Joshua Nkomo, Herbert Ushewokunze, Edgar Tekere, Eddison Zvobgo, Jeremiah Chamboko, Kumbirai Kangai, Emmerson Munangagwa, and Abel Muzorewa.
