Re-imagining Democracy and Political Transformation in Zimbabwe

July 9th, 2017

Words by Tendai Murisa

quick read



My own contribution begins by providing a wider context for discussion on prospects for transformation. It acknowledges that Zimbabwean intellectuals and other scholars have sought to engage with issues of transition and transformation for 30 years or more, issues of democracy and change for over 25 years. The final part of my contribution not only establishes the common elements in that literature and the book being launched today, “Beyond the Crises: Zimbabwe’s Prospects for Transformation”, but also their limitations. I also reflect on the ‘Democracy Manifesto’ contained in the book.
