This week we chat with three scholars in the diaspora about recent episodes of civil unrest in Zimbabwe. Dr. Chipo Dendere (@drDendere) of Gettysburg College gives us an overview of the recent protests in Zimbabwe and shares insights from her research on remittances and politics. Melusi Nkomo (@MelusiNkomoZim), fellow at Harvard University’s Center for African Studies, shares insights about spirituality and party politics in Zimbabwe. Finally, Dr. Zaza Kabayadondo (@ndiniZaza) of Smith College draws on her expertise in design to characterize how citizens are designing and redesigning ways of coping with Zimbabwe’s flagging economy.
