ABSTRACT

The institution of Traditional Leadership is as old as history and it has been part and parcel of

governance processes since time immemorial. The issues of succession and appointment were

being handled by spiritual mediums following the different systems pertaining to each culture

and tribe during the pre-colonial era. With the coming of post independence Zimbabwe the

succession and appointment processes of traditional leaders raised a lot of questions and

connotation because of political involvements in the selection and appointment of traditional

leaders. The conflicts which has emanated from the succession and appointment of traditional

leaders have resulted in chaos and at the end it have attracted many scholars and students to dig

deep investigating the subject matter. There are also irregularities in the nomination processes

used in different tribes which have made it difficult to come up with policies to reduce these

conflicts.
