In the pages of ‘These Bones Will Rise Again,’ (Indigo Press, 2018) Zimbabwean-South African writer, Panashe Chigumadzi, gives faces, emotion, colour and texture to a history often filled with the grandiose acts of men who, in leading Zimbabwe’s war of liberation, believed they owned it and the country they won back by it.

In juxtaposing her grandmother’s life with the events that were taking place in Zimbabwe as the now late matriarch came of age, fell in love, started a family and found ways to show her strength in a system that it seemed was designed to celebrate only the achievements of men, Chigumadzi asks pertinent questions about who else we have forgotten in the story of Zimbabwe.
