SotD: Toni Childs, “Zimbabwe”

“Can there be some peace on Earth? Can there be a love? Greater than the world we see, greater than us all…no more crime in your lifetime, Zimbabwe.”

This song, now almost 30 years old, has been in my head the last couple of weeks as events have unfolded in Harare.  While I don’t pay particularly close attention to African politics, I certainly was aware that Mr. Mugabe had ruled his country with an iron fist for a long time. I can’t know if or how much things will improve under Mr. Mnangagwa’s leadership, but I can echo Ms. Childs’ words and wish peace upon this land.
