Supporting the View that Zimbabwean Writers are not Court Jesters in View of Freedom Nyamubaya in “On the Road Again” and Chirikure-Chirikure in “We Shall Not Sleep”

Abstract

The author Freedom Nyamubaya is respected as the voice of the powerless in bringing the true account of the escapades of the armed struggle as an active member of the war of liberation, thus her writings are autobigographical.  Nyamubaya is well known for using Marxist feminist ideology in focusing on ways in which women are being oppressed through different systems of capitalism.  The Marxist feminist women’s liberation can be achieved through restructuring of the current capitalist situation, (Desai, 2014).   Chirikure Chirikure is greatly known as a mettlesome vernacular whose poetry mainly deals with contemporary issues and addresses his stories in denotative and connotative meanings.  Ideologically, the two writers Nyamubaya and Chirikure speculated their imaginations and visionary ideas to create a personal consciousness that is somehow time specific.  Rather than leaning on the dogma basis as most scholars do, the research seeks to contest a different point of view which brings clearly the light that Zimbabwean writers do not in any way court jest that is, aspiring to crave, elate and entertain the political table and all sorts of colonialism, neo colonialism, betrayals, violence and gender issues, thus no court jesting on all these momentous issues.   Mostly, senior leaders have a tendency of seeking only opinions and data that support the decisions they already made. They don’t elate the viewpoint of masses.   To this note, they surround themselves with people who tell them what they want to hear and insulate themselves from contrary data and perspectives of their interest.  And these people we call them court jesters.
