CIC Edmonton: After Robert Mugabe: Understanding the Transition in Zimbabwe
January 11, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm MST
After 37 years in power, Robert Mugabe is gone. Robert Mugabe resigned amid a military takeover and mass demonstrations, which were sparked by the dismissal of his then vice-president, Emmerson Mnangagwa. Dr. Guy Thompson will briefly examine the historical events that led to this power transition and what the reign of Emmerson ‘The Crocodile” Mnangagwa holds for the future of Zimbabwe.
Dr. Guy Thompson is a University of Alberta historian who specializes in the history of Zimbabwe.
The event is free, but registration on Eventbrite is required.
