The Reflections on Governance and the Rule of Law in Zimbabwe: Political Philosophy of Nicollo Machiaevelli


In academic circles and at international conferences, where the topic of human rights violations has been extensively addressed both formally and informally, governance and the rule of law have emerged as hot topics. Politics, the economy, the leadership crisis, the ideal political leadership, and legitimacy are the main topics of political debate in the media. The situation in Zimbabwe has been examined using a standard drawn from Machiavellian philosophy. Due to the collapse of African law and order brought on by the colonisation of Zimbabwe and other African nations, violence developed. The challenge of creating a perfect framework for defining and operationalizing the two concepts at both the national and international levels has been further exacerbated by globalisation. The globe should be governed as a single, integrated community under a perfect international legal order. The ultimate goal is to produce a new generation of political leaders who respect human rights, appreciate life, and offer human security. The most unclear and divisive issues facing the African community and the globe at large are security and human rights. The study objectives were achieved by using surveys, interviews, and secondary data sources. My research is based on hermeneutics and philosophical analytical approaches. The study’s findings show a diversity of developing viewpoints on African political leadership, governance, and the rule of law. The most common, if contentious, assumption is that violence, rigging, and corruption are necessary components of African politics. As this article explains, the rights to a respectable quality of living, enough security, access to healthcare, land, and peace have evolved from being basic human rights to political rights.
