Hardcover xl - from an academic library, clean, normal library wear and markings, . vii, 210 p. map. 22 cm ["Ndabaningi Sithole (31 July 1920 - 12 December 2000) founded the Zimbabwe African National Union, a militant organization that opposed the government of Rhodesia, in July 1963. A member of the Ndau ethnic group, he also worked as a Methodist minister. He spent 10 years in prison after the government banned ZANU. A rift along tribal lines split ZANU in 1975, and he lost the 1980 elections to Robert Mugabe."] ["Obed Mutezo like Roots of a Revolution, was written while he was imprisoned.Obed Mutezo is one of three books in which Sithole has explored the significance of African nationalism through the particular experiences of one individual man, a literary method that Sithole has handled more successfully than quasi-documentary fiction. He first experimented with this form of political biography in the second edition of African Nationalism, where he added information about his own career as a nationalist to the account of his life before becoming a nationalist, which had been in the original edition. In Obed Mutezo Sithole examines the commitment to African nationalism of a local branch official of ZANU, describing his involvement in politics against the background of his private life, in particular his belief in the power of his ancestral spirits and his faith in Christianity. By giving this detailed portrait of a particular average African nationalist supporter Sithole provides a new dimension in understanding the African nationalist movement which studies of its aims, ideology and leadership omit."] Mutezo, Obed., Nationalism -- Zimbabwe.
