I am part of a generation that is standing up and waking up, firmly convinced that despite our various identities, we are bound by our common Zimbabweaness and are heirs to the original vision that gave birth to our nation during the War of Liberation. A vision of a free, just and prosperous Zimbabwe anchored on communal ownership of this land and representative democracy. Our generation's responsibility is to see that vision through, and I have dedicated myself to being a part of that. Further we are alive to the fact that similar processes are happening across our continent, and the same can be said in a wider sense about our generation's responsibility to take up the original vision of pan-Africanism and forge a united, modern Africa.
