dc.description.abstract This report will examine the operations of the National Archives of Zimbabwe, the National Archives of Zimbabwe Act of 1986 (Chapter 25:06), current legislation on access of official records and other factors that prevent access to official records such as those on the Gukurahundi massacre. The report also examines what the Gukurahundi massacre was about, and how we know what we know about the massacre. The research report suggests that the government of Zimbabwe should liberalise access to all government records, and that archival legislation and record surveys be reviewed in order to ensure better service delivery. It further suggests that the Gukurahundi massacre be included in school curricula, because it is an important aspect of the nation’s heritage. en_US
