Africa faces a new intensifying quandary of liberation movements. They have thrown all ideals that initially motivated them to fight the malevolent regimes. While some have metamorphosed into democratic political parties, ZANU-PF continues to brandish the colonial card while asserting its will on the masses holding them indebted to it for their ‘liberation.''The book adds to the debate on the role of liberation movements in the furthering of human rights and democratization in Africa by tackling the much ignored perspective of a blocked transition that the movements such as the ZANU-PF are culpable for. It looks at what internal factors (within Zimbabwe) have contributed to this blocked transition, examines how the behaviour or response of Zimbabwe''s regional neighbours (SADC), has been a contributing factor to this dilemma and questions the extent to which the wider African continent been party to this mayhem of the ZANU-PF''s stalled transition. The analysis should be helpful to democratization and liberation movements'' scholars especially in Southern Africa.
