Summary note
"The tension between the Ndebele and Shona people dates back to the pre-colonial era and this has been one of the major threats to Zimbabwe's peace. The book proposes Paul's ethics of reconciliation in the Corinthian correspondence as inspiration for social cohesion between the Ndebele and Shona tribes. The volume deploys Pauline key symbols (Christ, the Cross of Christ, Ambassador, New Creation, and Baptism) as epistemological lenses in promoting identity tags that go beyond ethnicity. For these symbols to be effective, the author proposes setting up of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), refraining from using ethnic offensive language, introduction of Ndebele and Shona languages in schools, substituting ethnic provincial names with neutral ones, substituting ethnic registration system of people with a neutral one, and the devolution of power."-- Provided by publisher
