Live: Five Zimbabwean writers on Zimbabwe


We ask a group some of Zimbabwe’s most well-known writers and journalists from widely divergent backgrounds to reflect on how their country got to this point. Join us live Tue 29 Jul, 7.30pm UK time on the Frontline Club livestream channel. The BBC’s George Alagiah will chair the discussion with; Lauren St John (author and journalist), Georgina Godwin (writer and broadcaster), Wilf Mbanga (The Zimbabwean), Andrew Mutandwa (former press secretary to Mugabe) and Chofamba Innocent Sithole (writer and journalist)

With no solution in sight to the current crisis in Zimbabwe, we ask five Zimbabwean writers and journalists for their reflections on where their country is heading and what should be done. Will the violence against the civilian population stop? What does the recent agreement mean between the MDC and Robert Mugabe? How long can Mugabe continue to preside over such chaos and how are ordinary Zimbabweans surviving amid rampant inflation, shortages and political violence?

More information on the event can be found here. The livestream goes live at 7.30pm UK time tonight.
