Tendai Biti: “Zimbabwe’s Government of National Unity: A One Year Assessment”
Tuesday, January 26, 2010 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm
National Press Club, Holeman Lounge
529 14th Street NW, Washington, DC
Once lauded as the breadbasket of Southern Africa, Zimbabwe has been persistently besieged by economic hardship, political instability, and a mounting humanitarian crisis. While initial progress was made in stabilizing the economy following the creation of the Government of National Unity (GNU) in February 2009, it seems that momentum for reform has dwindled. One year after the coalition government was formed, Hon. Tendai Biti will take stock of the many challenges that Zimbabwe currently faces, as well as indicate potential signs of progress and avenues for long-term success.
Please join Freedom House and the National Democratic Institute for a luncheon discussion on the situation in Zimbabwe. Thomas O. Melia, Freedom House Deputy Executive Director, will moderate the discussion.
