Introducing: Give Me Cholera: Forging a Future for Zimbabwe by Kajsa Norman

Give Me CholeraKajsa Norman is a freelance journalist whose latest book, Give Me Cholera: Forging a Future for Zimbabwe, looks at the political and cultural forces that will shape the future of Zimbabwe in the aftermath of the upcoming elections. Give Me Cholera is published by OpenGlobal.

About the book

Change is inevitable in Zimbabwe. The ageing President Robert Mugabe’s 30-year reign will soon end, whether by death, succession or election. But what will become of the country?

From the living room of the prime minister, to lesbian underground parties, Kajsa Norman travels Zimbabwe in search of the cultural and political forces that will shape its future. We get to accompany her on meetings with torturers and their victims, thinkers and activists, healers and thieves; on a journey among mass graves, ransacked lives, and deserted tourist resorts, deeper and deeper into a system of corruption and fear that soon threatens to engulf her.

Give Me Cholera is the gripping tale about the psychological effects of life in a dictatorship and about the real prospects for democracy in a country where people sell their souls to survive.

“An honest and impressive portrayal of Zimbabwe.” – Amnesty Press.
