The Centre for Conflict Management and Transformation is a non-governmental organisation, formed in 2003, that works to transform ways in which societies deal with conflict - away from adversarial approaches towards collaborative problem solving.

Using a multi-faceted consultative approach, we partner with local and national government, traditional leaders, faith leaders, private companies, research and academic institutions, civil society and communities to find appropriate means to strengthen societies' capacity to deal with socio-economic and culture challenges.

CCMT’s Statement on Africa Day
Centre for Conflict Management and Transformation (CCMT) joins Africa in commemorating Africa Day. This year, the commemoration run under the theme:
“Arts, Culture and Heritage: Levers for Building the Africa we Want”.

The African Union theme of the year 2021 presents an opportunity for the continent to celebrate its great Pan Africanists who have played and are still playing a key role in African development.

We believe that art, culture and heritage can nurture peace by providing a voice to the oppressed and the marginalised groups in communities. It enhances the relevance and legitimacy of the process of attaining peace. The African culture is a universal culture that joins and unites the Africans towards peace, thus a very important tool in peacebuilding and conflict transformation. In Africa, the increased use of art and culture have strengthened communities and have established conflict prevention mechanisms which are very successful.  

As CCMT, we pay tribute to the fallen heroes and heroines who paid the ultimate price in the African Union’s peace support missions in pursuit for the security and peace on the continent. Their sacrifices have led towards attaining the Pan African vision of a prosperous, integrated and peaceful Africa. As a peacebuilding organisation, we believe that peace is possible in Africa and we envision an African society that believes in peace and manages conflicts constructively. We envision an African society where people actively participate in creating economic and social justice by transforming all forms of conflict constructively. We encourage members of the African Union to work together towards the goal of peace and security and to also intervene in conflict-ridden societies so as to commend people to reach mutual agreements through art, culture and heritage. We call upon the African Union to protect all human rights by practicing mutual understanding, tolerance and solidarity.
We encourage the African Union to continue to promote shared values within the continent and beyond. The day gives the African continent a chance to reflect on the progress that it has made, and it also gives the continent an opportunity to unite towards pursuit of the Agenda 2063 core aspirations.
 

CCMT’s Statement on International Women’s Day
Centre for Conflict Management and Transformation (CCMT) joins the rest of the world in commemorating International Women’s Day (IWD). This year, the commemorations run under the theme: “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world”. 

The Covid 19 pandemic has widened the inequality gap between men and women, in addition to an increase in Gender Based Violence cases. On this day, CCMT would like to celebrate the brave men and women in the remote rural areas of the country who have stood up to challenge gender inequalities, stigma, stereotypes and violence.

CCMT calls upon the Government of Zimbabwe to put women at all tables where decisions are made, including in Covid 19 response task teams. The United Nations has analysed Covid 19 task teams in 87 countries and found out that only 3.5 percent of them have gender parity. This is worrying and has to be addressed forthwith.

This can be done by fully implementing the National Gender Policy and the relevant constitutional provisions that promote gender equality as well as ensuring that institutions mandated to promote gender equality such as the Gender Commission are fully resourced.

CCMT takes this opportunity to celebrate women who are at the forefront in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic as nurses, scientists, doctors and caregivers and encourages government, civil society, private sector and all the relevant stakeholders to provide them with all the necessary support that they deserve including flexible working arrangements and provision of services to prevent Gender Based Violence.

Uprooted and Left Behind -
The Displacement of the Gorongwe Community

The Gorongwe community was displaced to pave way for Mataga Growth Point. They did not receive adequate support in the relocation process and their compensation was eroded by inflation. After settling in at their new location, chrome mining threatens to displace them once again and they fear history repeating itself:
