A Nonviolent Zimbabwe Pt. 1 « Global HZ

How do you get someone to see past their current circumstances and plan for the future?

In America, debt and poor planning are clear signs of some struggle with shortsightedness. Shortsighted decisions made in the moment have a tremendous, compounding effect on the future. Most of us know about this in some way.

In Zimbabwe, one result of shortsightedness is a lack of value for human life, exemplified by youth violence. In a country that experienced a violent election period only a short time ago, many young people have turned to violence to solve their problems. Young lives are cut short, either through death or from the legal consequences of murder.

I had the privilege of conducting a brief interview with one of our partners here at GHI, Masango Matimura. Masango leads an organization called Holistic

Peace and Development Zimbabwe (HPDZ). He was recently asked to address around 100 Zimbabwean youth on the long-term effects of violence in leadership. The young people were all residents of Mutare, capital city of the Manicaland province, which is heading into another heated political season next year.

“The presentation was timely in that political parties and leaders are busy mobilizing youths in preparation for possible elections next year. In the past, young people have been manipulated to commit violence against perceived opponents for a pint of beer, ” said Matimura.

“My topic was ‘Nonviolent Approaches to Social Transformation: From a Leadership and Developmental Perspective.’ My presentation aimed at causing a paradigm shift so that youths choose nonviolence in addressing political and interpersonal differences. I showed them that this makes them and others feel safe, ” said Matimura.

In a politically charged environment, Matimura shared the common challenges of poverty, safety, development, personal responsibility, and accountability before God. By the end of the presentation, even the most vocal and partisan members of the audience were nodding in agreement with the teaching.
