The Changing Narrative of Zimbabwe’s Post-Colonial History in the Making

End of the ‘Liberation War Narrative’?
 
Introduction

The quest for a post-colonial developmental state in Zimbabwe which started in 1980 has delivered mixed results for the country and its citizens. From the early successes in basic social service delivery to the chaotic but necessary land reform exercise, all the positives have been blighted by the general malaise that has bedeviled the country since the late 1990s.
