Zimbabwe: The Urgency of Now

Creative Non-Fictions and Essays

by Tendai Rinos Mwanaka

Zimbabwe: The Urgency of Now is a collection of creative nonfiction pieces. It is a follow-up to Zimbabwe: The Blame Game. With Zimbabwe: The Urgency of Now, I focused on the Zimbabwe political, economic and social landscape post the negotiations of the government of national unity (6th Year of Zim Talks), the GNU years (GNU Entity and Power-sharing Deal Limitations), the 2013 July elections (2013 Elections Preparedness), and post-2013 elections (Post-election Zimbabwe’s Political, Economic and Social Landscape). I have tried to free myself from the fetters of academic or journalistic type of nonfiction writing and have experimented with the creative nonfiction type of writing, where I look at the issues in a creatively focused, laidback, imaginative, simple language, with the story-telling genre, diary, memoirs, playwriting and poetic genre being mixed with nonfiction.
