I have come to understand that what I love about Zim, and what makes it such a fascinating place to live in and write about are its myriad contradictions. This, of course, is unappealing to those who have fixed ideas about ‘Mugabe’s Zimbabwe’. But if you are interested in Zim and its many contradictions, stick with me, I will be writing more in the coming months.
That is Petina Gappah on her excellent blog. She is not the only Buddhist in Harare. She is not even a Buddhist. You will have to read the post. I look forward to following the contradictions.
