An African National Congress (ANC) delegation will be meeting other liberation movement leaders from the continent in Zimbabwe.
The leaders will be gathering to discuss issues that include the recent violent xenophobic attacks that have plagued South Africa.
Zimbabwe is currently mourning the death of former President Robert Mugabe, who died last week in Singapore after a lengthy illness.
ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule said the leagues of different political parties from countries including Angola, Mozambique, Tanzania and Namibia would begin talks on Tuesday as the South African government scrambled to quell tensions between locals and foreign nationals.
The ANC had been at pains to describe the violence as xenophobic hate crimes.
Magashule also said that another delegation led by President Cyril Ramaphosa would return to Zimbabwe later this week for Mugabe’s funeral.
