Tonderai Munyevu

Performing Arts

Something strange happens when the past comes crushing into you, right in the present. April, 1980. The British colony of Rhodesia becomes the independent nation of Zimbabwe. A born-free, Tonderai Munyevu is part of the hopeful next generation from a country with a new leader, Robert Mugabe. Mugabe, My Dad and Me charts the rise and fall of one of the most controversial politicians of the 20th century through the lens of Tonderai's family story and his relationship with his father.
