Abstract:Casting out demons is a daily practice among Pentecostal churches in Zimbabwe. While previous studies by theologians linked demon exorcism to evil spirits, in this study it is argued that, in Zimbabwe, casting out demons is a coded protest against Mugabe and his government. The author's theoretical perspective develops from Frantz Fanon and James Scott. Notes, ref., sum. [Journal abstract]
