Who is reading the book in Zimbabwe?

Miles Tendi  is the author of the excellent book, Making History in Mugabe’s Zimbabwe: Politics, Intellectuals and the Media. He was also going to speak at the launch event for Zimbabwe’s Land Reform in London, but was unfortunately not able to make it. The comments he was going to make were put together as a blog for African Arguments. They make interesting reading, illustrating how land issues remain a hot topic amongst intellectuals in the political-military elite, but also that the opposition and civil society have found it difficult to engage, and develop an alternative narrative on land divorced from the violent, nationalist rhetoric of ZANU-PF.
