Abstract:Text of an address given to the Britain-Zimbabwe Society, in association with The Royal Commonwealth Society and The Royal African Society, in October 1988. The author tells about his visit to Southern Matabeleland, Zimbabwe, in May 1988, when the unitary agreement between ZANU/PF and ZAPU had been signed, and particularly about what he learned about the brutalities of 1983 and 1985, about the dissidents, and about the 'crisis of expectations' and the optimism which now exist in Matabeleland. A few updating comments are added, and the author concludes that, despite all the present problems and those that will arise in the future, unity and amnesty in Matabeleland have indeed inaugurated a new era; a second 'miracle' of reconciliation to match that with the whites in 1980.
