Link: Lessons of Zimbabwe [Pambazuka News]

This is Mahmood Mamdani's controversial article on the crisis in Zimbabwe. It was originally printed in the London Review of Books but I have given this link because of the excellent comment to the article by F Kashiri. On my return from my holiday, I will sift through the information in the article and in Kashiri's reply and hopefully it will help me to understand the spirit behind the independence struggle in Zimbabwe.

Link: The Politics of Naming: Genocide, Civil War, Insurgency [London Review of Books]

Another controversial Mamdani article on Darfur. Mamdani has many critics; he has been called an apologist by some an factually incorrect by others. Nevertheless, his articles and books are worth a read and assist in forming your own arguments on the subjects.
