Sample text

By 1979, it was estimated that there were over 210,000 Zimbabwean refugees in Mozambique, Botswana and Zambia (UNHCR, 2000). For the majority of people who went into exile during the war of liberation, migration was seen as temporary, with no intention of permanent settlement. While the academic literature is replete with analyses of the migration of Zimbabwean refugees to neighbouring countries in the region (Makanya, 1994; Jackson, 1994), it is silent on those who sought political asylum in other countries abroad.

Within Southern Africa, population movement and cross-border migration has been an integral feature of the region’s political, social and economic landscape. For instance, recently Zimbabwe has been a source, destination and passage for migrants going to work in South African gold mines. On one hand, Zimbabweans worked in South Africa’s gold mines for many years. On the other, Zimbabwe was a recipient of and corridor for labour migrants from Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique en route to South African gold mines (Tevera and Zinyama, 2002).

By the end of 1965, the colonial regime had outlawed all African nationalist organizations. African leaders were either restricted or detained in Rhodesia or forced into exile. During this period, Mlambo (2010) documents the arrival of white immigrants who were fleeing political independence in other African countries such as Mozambique, Angola, Kenya, Zambia and the Congo. When the war of liberation intensified from 1972 onwards the resultant political instability in the country forced many white Zimbabweans to leave the country.
