"Dark Continent
"A minority of conservative European observers, such as Dr. William Pierce, assert this fact to be the result of lower intelligence, describing Africa as "The Dark Continent" in reference to its perennial poverty and warfare." The demographics section needs a lot of work. It is utterly simplistic, misleading and contradictory. edit
Lack of Specifics
The lack of statistics and examples in the History and Politics sections is discomforting.

Zimbabwe Introduction
Zimbabwe, formerly called Rhodesia, is a landlocked country in southern Africa. Most of the country is a high plateau. Zimbabwe lies in the tropics but has a pleasant climate because of the high altitude. Zimbabwe's beautiful scenery includes the famous Victoria Falls on the Zambezi River along the country's northern border. Zimbabwe is a leading mineral producer. Harare (formerly called Salisbury) is the capital and largest city.

by Edmore Mufema Spirituality, land and land reform in South Africa ... Rev. Rupert Hambira In 1996, Indigenous People met during the Conference on World Mission and Evangelism held in Salvador Bahia Brazil. One year later, the World Council of Churches’ Indigenous Peoples’ Programme (WCC/IPP) in cooperation with the Botswana Christian Council also held a workshop under the theme "Spirituality, Land and the Role of the Churches in the Struggle for the Indigenous Peoples’ Rights" in Gabarone. From that meeting came a call to continue building spiritual,cultural and political identities within the churches in the countries where Indigenous Peoples are located. The areas of critical concern identified were land, protection of rights under international law, preservation/promotion of culture, decision making processes, advocacy, spirituality and networking. In February 1998, some Indigenous Peoples participants who had been at the Gabarone workshop and other representatives from Africa, attended a consultation on "Land and Spirituality" in Karasjok, Norway. Here the world-wide Indigenous Peoples community exchanged ways in which their spiritualities and lands were threatened. From this sharing, ideas of cooperation and responsibilities were discussed. The Indigenous meeting and the statement of Karasjok became a strong challenge to convene in Harare to identify the critical issues affecting African Indigenous Peoples in general. Before the WCC’s eighth Assembly in Harare, "Land and Spirituality: The African Context" was the theme chosen for the workshop the same theme used in Karasjok, Norway. It showed the connectedness between the spiritualities of the Indigenous Peoples and the land on which they originated.

Zimbabwe and provided a new context for the interaction of the two major
African peoples: the Shona and the Ndebele. It was also likely to make a
difference in the significance of groupings within the preponderant Shona
population. Until 1980 Europeans were politically and economically dominant. They
controlled the allocation of resources and benefits and had anchored their
status and privileges in the political and legal systems. Except for a few
individuals, Europeans were socially isolated from Africans, who related to
them mainly as representatives of government authority or as employers and to
a lesser extent as missionaries or teachers. In other contexts, such as the marketplace or the clinic or hospital, relations between blacks and whites were ephemeral and impersonal. In all of these situations Africans' deference

Corruption in the public sector is money diverted into someone's pocket that
should have been spent on development. Corruption happens everywhere but is
particularly endemic in Africa. Certain African countries can lay claim to
being world leaders in this field. Large-scale contracts (especially in the
field of telecomms) controlled by government are particularly open to the
unscrupulous "taking a cut". To discourage it one business leader - John
Gage of Sun Systems - is suggesting government makes transparency - using the internet - a feature of how they operate. However petty corruption at all levels discourages foreign investment. This week John Onunga describes a project set up in Kenya that encourages people to report this small-scale graft electronically.

PROLOGUE Time and space encapsulate a void in which an entire civilization can be lost for centuries. The Shona Empire encompassed the land mass of Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa. The cities of Mapungubwe, Thelamela and Great Zimbabwe were thriving commercial cities. Commercial traders transported their goods on the Shashe and Limpopo Rivers. These waterways connected the Shona with African east coast commercial trading centers which networked into the markets of India and China. The Shona people built hundreds of cities of stone, crowded with three story apartment complexes, housing tens of thousands of people. They tended vast herds of cattle and grew rich as the cattlemen of Africa. The history of Zimbabwe would be hidden from European perception until the twentieth century. This was the Shona Empire.

U.S.A. ABSTRACT INTRODUCTION Indigenization of Psychology of Human Intelligence in Sub-Saharan Africa: Some Representative Studies The study by Wober (1974) on conceptions of intelligence among the Baganda and the Batoro is probably among the most known of all African studies. Wober established that Ugandan Baganda and Batoro villagers described intelligence as socially oriented behavior of benefit to the collective. The Ugandans' view of intelligence as essentially social contrasted with the cognitivistic perception of intelligence in Western societies. Irvine's (1970, 1988) studies of intelligence among the Shona of Zimbabwe also established that they regarded intelligence as public-spirited behavior or achievements that benefit the group. According to Irvine, the Shona regarded intelligence to comprise ungwaru (dispositional intelligence), and

A WWF International Position Paper Indigenous Peoples and Conservation: WWF Statement of Principles
Indigenous peoples inhabit nearly 20 per cent of the planet, mainly in areas where they have lived for thousands of years. Compared with protected area managers, who control about 6 per cent of the world's land mass, indigenous peoples are the earth's most important stewards. During more than three decades of conservation work, WWF has been approached by many indigenous and rural communities seeking collaboration on issues like protected area management and the conservation of natural resources. Notable amongst them are the Hupa Indians of northern California, the Inuit of Isabella Bay in Canada, the Zoque Indians of Mexico, the Karen of Thailand, the Shona people in Zimbabwe, the Kuna of Panama, the Shimshali of Pakistan, the Phoka people of northern Malawi, the Imagruen of Mauritania, the Ewenk of Siberia, and many others scattered all over the globe. WWF is, or has recently been, working with indigenous peoples in all regions of the world: in Europe, Latin America, North America, Asia, the Pacific, and Africa. WWF's views on the relationship between indigenous peoples and modern conservation have been touched upon in several of our recent publications. As a result of its central role in discussing indigenous peoples issues at the IV World Congress on National Parks and Protected Areas, WWF published the book The Law of the Mother, edited by Elizabeth Kemf, which collects and analyses experiences at the interface between indigenous peoples and conservation, including several project sites where WWF has been involved. In publications like Conservation with People and Forests For Life, WWF has expressed its conviction that indigenous peoples are crucial actors in conservation. Together with IUCN and UNEP, in Caring for the Earth WWF acknowledged the need for recognition "of the aboriginal rights of indigenous peoples to their lands and resources ... and to participate effectively in decisions affecting their lands and resources".

Colors Of Zimbabwe Ukama as a way of fighting the different threats that would tear them apart, the Shona people developed an intricate and intellectually appealing social and spiritual customs of beliefs that support their philosophy today. Through their deep and sensitive values and traditions they have ensured their ancestral and cultural integrity for many years. Ukama means extended family. Many years ago, the whites came and took land that had no boundaries and set boundaries and formed countries. One of those countries was Rhodesia, named for a British settler named Cecil Rhodes. Rhodesia was a country of two parts, Northern and Southern. The Rhodesian Government, controlled by whites, instituted a form of servitude and segregation that was very harsh and cruel, it was called apartheid. This apartheid system was unjust and very oppressive to the native people of the land. The native people were not allowed to live in the best part of their own land. They were not allowed to vote and they were made to live on reservations that were called suburbs. They were not allowed to buy the same foods as the whites that were in power. Most of the people worked as domestics for whites or they worked on farms for the whites. Few had land that they farmed for themselves.

African Initiated Churches (AICs, since the initials can stand equally well for African Independent Churches, African Instituted Churches or African Indigenous Churches) are African churches which were founded by Africans and function without referring to western missions or churches. They range from churches that are indistinguishable from Mission churches to those which are really African traditional religions using Christian vocabulary. AICs are strongest and most numerous in Kenya, Nigeria and Southern Africa, though there are hardly any in Tanzania, Uganda, or Sierra Leone. Most AICs are protestant churches. As Adrian Hastings phrased it: "African Catholics were being good Catholics (putting the unity and authority of the Church first), African Protestants were being good Protestants, members of a tradition in which Church unity had always taken second place." [Hastings 528] Their protestant roots allowed the AICs to break away from the mission churches with few qualms. Most AICs share the protestant stress on the authority of the Bible, usually read literally. They differ from most mission churches in that they read the Bible with an African cultural background rather than a western cultural background, which made it easier to read some things literally than the missionaries.
