DAMSEL | Sally Mugabe: Zimbabwe’s Moral Compass

In last week’s feature, “Joice Mujuru: Spilt Blood in Post-Independence Zimbabwe”, I explored Mujuru’s achievements in post-independence Zimbabwe and during the liberation struggle to highlight that whilst women exercise agency, it is not necessarily towards liberatory ends.
