“Han Solo, Chewbacca and the Tynwald land tenure rebellion do not form any part of the popular narrative that informs discussion of Zimbabwe’s current predicament. And yet, it is memories such as these – of ordinary citizens standing up against the colour bar, of the euphoria in the first days of our hard-won independence – that have the potential to inspire the desire for change today.”
