In his interview on post-independence politics, Dumiso Dabengwa gives a brief statement of his background and then immediately refers to events from the implementation of the ceasefire, to the 1980 election, his role in stopping the Entumbane fighting in 1981, the 1982 collapse of the coalition government and his arrest on treason charges. He also gives his views on the malign role of the British in first creating ZANU and then ensuring its victory in 1980 and discusses the “dissidents”, his imprisonment, the death of Lookout Masuku and the Unity Accord in 1987.
