16 years on: 8 Joshua Nkomo visionary quotes

“I write because I feel that our country is in danger of complete disintegration, to the detriment of all its citizens now living and of generations to come,” Joshua Nkomo wrote to then Prime Minister Robert Mugabe in 1983.

Nkomo died in 1999 after a long battle with cancer. In the 1980s he spoke passionately about where he thought the wheels were coming off in newly independent Zimbabwe.

Below are some of his visionary quotes, which are still relevant today, as the country battles political and economic decline.
