Chief Justice Gubbay was appointed as Chief Justice of Zimbabwe by Robert Mugabe in 1990 but then forced to retire in 2001. In this book, George Douvelos has collected tributes from some of Chief Justice Gubbay's many admirers, together with a number of papers and addressed delivered by the judge himself, to present a graphic portrayal of what can happen when the Rule of Law is ignored, and judges are subjected to a variety of pressures by political forces to achieve political ends. What emerges is the story of one courageous man who remained faithful throughout to the Rule of Law, and steadfast in protecting judicial independence, in the face of enormous challenges. Chief Justice Gubbay's life, and his example, should serve as an inspiration to all who value freedom, justice and democracy.

The establishment of legal institutions was a key part of the process of state construction in Africa, and these institutions have played a crucial role in the projection of state authority across space. This is especially the case in colonial and postcolonial Zimbabwe. George Karekwaivanane offers a unique long-term study of law and politics in Zimbabwe, which examines how the law was used in the constitution and contestation of state power across the late-colonial and postcolonial periods. Through this, he offers insight on recent debates about judicial independence, adherence to human rights, and the observation of the rule of law in contemporary Zimbabwean politics. The book sheds light on the prominent place that law has assumed in Zimbabwe's recent political struggles for those researching the history of the state and power in Southern Africa. It also carries forward important debates on the role of law in state-making, and will also appeal to those interested in African legal history.

  • Introduction : the rise of rights talk in Zimbabwe
  • "Panel-beating the law" : constitution-making in Zimbabwe
  • Justice in a time of impunity : remaking social worlds after political violence
  • Producing knowledge about human rights in Harare
  • Personhood and rights among Zimbabwean migrants in South Africa
  • Conclusion : the situationality of human rights.
The international legal framework of human rights presents itself as universal. But rights do not exist as a mere framework; they are enacted, practiced, and debated in local contexts. Rights After Wrongs ethnographically explores the chasm between the ideals and the practice of human rights. Specifically, it shows where the sweeping colonial logics of Western law meets the lived experiences, accumulated histories, and humanitarian debts present in post-colonial Zimbabwe. Through a comprehensive survey of human rights scholarship, Shannon Morreira explores the ways in which the global framework of human rights is locally interpreted, constituted, and contested in Harare, Zimbabwe, and Musina and Cape Town, South Africa. Presenting the stories of those who lived through the violent struggles of the past decades, Morreira shows how supposedly universal ideals become localized in the context of post-colonial Southern Africa. Rights After Wrongs uncovers the disconnect between the ways human rights appear on paper and the ways in which it is possible for people to use and understand them in everyday life.
