Welcome to Chimvukela TV, a channel established to be a conduit through which tales of the Second Chimurenga/Umvukela are told by those who participated in it.
A non-partisan and not-for-profit initiative put into motion by an array of young Zimbabweans who include: academics; journalists; media personalities; as well as organic scholars and creatives in collaboration with the Ndabaningi Sithole Foundation, Chimvukela (Chimurenga and Umvukela combined) TV has been created in recognition of the following realities.
1) As the seasons change, the generation of men and women who fought in the Chimurenga/Umvukela is passing on. As such, it is important to comprehensively document their stories while we still have them.
2) Zimbabwe’s liberation struggle is a legendary one with missing pages that can still be filled by the many freedom fighters still alive today who can share their perspectives and experiences with the younger generations. Our goal is for inter-generational connection between the “Chimurenga/Umvukela” generations and the “independent” generations in a manner that will inspire present and future generations.
3) As young Zimbabweans (and Africans in general) a time has come where we need to tell our own history as lived through our experiences and learn from the good and the bad – after all “if we do not know where we have come from, how can we ever know where we are going to?”
