Title   Zimbabwe: Increased Securitisation of the State?
Author Maroleng, Chris; Institute for Security Studies
Edition PDF
Published Pretoria: ISS
Year 2005-09-07
Pages 14
Serial Situation report
Abstract More than four months have passed since Zimbabwe held its parliamentary polls and it still seems that the winner of these elections, the governing Zimbabwe African Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF), still has no clear intention to end Zimbabwe’s political crisis or a programme to resuscitate this country’s collapsing economy. Instead, President Mugabe and his allies within ZANU-PF have used the post-election period to launch further attacks on opponents, both inside an outside of the party, in a series of somewhat chaotic policy decisions, including operation Murambatsvina, ostensibly in a bid to consolidate their power base.
