More About Zimbabwe

Located at Africa’s geographical heart, Zimbabwe is one of Africa’s most ancient countries. Its people are a diverse mix of several cultures who have lived together for centuries and forged a nation steeped in history. Following independence from Britain in 1980, economic mismanagement, corruption and political persecution wreaked havoc on its economy and business environment. In 2000, concerned about a growing insurgency led by nationalist guerrillas, President Robert Mugabe declared a state of emergency that resulted in mass arrests and prolonged detention without trial for thousands of citizens opposed to his rule. Mugabe won another term last year amid violence-marred elections that Western nations denounced as fraudulent; he remains deeply controversial within his country as well as abroad.

History of Zimbabwe

The oldest kingdom in Zimbabwe is that of Mapungubwe, a kingdom that was founded around 1050 AD and established its capital at Great Zimbabwe near Masvingo. The Kingdom of Great Zimbabwe began as a small polity about 300 AD. In 1450, it encompassed most of modern-day Zimbabwe and extended northwards into what is now Zambia. According to legend, its first king, Nyatsimba Mutota from nearby South Africa, chose it as his royal residence because it was located at a confluence of two rivers that ensured water security. At its peak, between 1200 and 1500 AD; Great Zimbabwe’s population exceeded 70 000 people making it one of sub-Saharan Africa’s largest settlements at the time.
