| than a decade of work by a tripartite relationship between the spirit
mediums, the chiefs and the veterans of the liberation struggle in trying
to resuscitate the indigenous visions of the indigenous peoples of Zimbabwe
in management of natural resources has established important issues that
are key to sustainable agriculture practices and natural resources management.
Based on this alliance between the spirit mediums, chiefs and veterans
of the liberation struggle an institution known as Association of Zimbabwe
Traditional Environmental Conservationists (AZTREC) was formed in 1985.
The alliance of the spirit mediums, chiefs and war veterans dates back
prior to colonization when these were the facets of upholding the beliefs,
values and norms of the indigenous people. It continued at colonization
when the indigenous people resisted the colonial regime resulting in the
first Chimurenga war of the 1890’s and the subsequent war of liberation
which took years of fighting. The tripartite relationship have continued
today as a way of reviving the lost heritage resulting from colonization.
