Abstract:After a comparison of South Africa's involvement in Mozambique and in Rhodesia (Zimbabwe), the article focusses on the problematic of violence and the need for healing felt by those people in Zimbabwe who have been involved in atrocities or killings in the context of the guerrilla war. Healing rituals developed in almost all Zimbabwean churches after the war. They also developed, or revived, in various forms of African 'traditional' religion. The response of Zimbabwean churchmen to violence has been much more experimental than theoretical, as was the case in South Africa. Notes, ref.
