 The dissemination of state-of-the-art knowledge and research findings across disciplines occupies the heart of journal production. Ubuntu: Journal of Conflict and Social Transformation remains committed to this ideal. This is in view of the richness of the articles published in successive editions of the journal that treat important and at times issues that require urgent intellectual intervention. The changing nature and character of conflicts and their resolution requires the perusal of vast array of issues and topics, including those that fall outside of the traditional realm of conflict. This is with a view to finding wholistic approach to social transformation which is the logical conclusion of conflict and conflict resolution. This edition of Ubuntu covers wide range of issues that speak to the focus of the journal. A key value of the edition is the multidisciplinary nature of the contributions. Contributions from scholars from diverse backgrounds speak to the viability of............

Ubuntu, a journal of Conflict and Social Transformation has the mandate to enrich the search to the development and stability of Africa and the world. The resolution of conflict is a strategic tool for social transformation without which humanity will be thrown into chaos and a resultant lack of development. Conflicts in our contemporary times have taken forms that are distinctly different from the traditional nature of conflict in the world. While actual war-situation violence has almost ceased among states, intra-state conflicts have arisen, and non-traditional elements of conflicts have also come to compound the phenomenon. Hence, the need to come up with a platform for intellectual and academic contributions provided by Ubuntu. This special edition of the journal deals with a wide array of non-traditional elements of conflict or elements that have could to exacerbate conflict situations especially in developing countries. Issues like gender, climate change, communication, violen............

At the heart of Ubuntu: Journal of Conflict and Social Transformation is the promotion of humaneness, which broadly promotes our common humanity and idea of kindness towards others. Hence, the modern notion of human rights can be subsumed, though arguably, within the idea of Ubuntu. Human rights are rights to which everyone is inherently entitled to (APA, 2016). Globally, December 10th has been designated as Human Rights’ Day. The day is used to remind and make loud calls on governments and all stakeholders to respect the socio-political and economic rights of others. One of the core values for maintaining humanness in the context of interpersonal relationships is the recognition that our shared values and collective humanity do not obviate individual differences. Aptly, Ubuntu demands solidarity which respects the other; thus, the violation of human rights is an abuse which triggers stress in every sense of it. Accordingly, the four articles on offer and personal reflections ............

Freedom Mazwi and Rangarirai Muchetu explore the exploitative emergent agrarian relations in the sugarcane plantation estates in eastern Zimbabwe following the fast tracked state-driven land reform program in 2000. Zimbabwe’s initial violent land reform program and the resultant uncertainties over land tenure security and political instability saw a number of banks suspending agriculture financing to the beneficiaries of land redistribution. Fifteen years later, the financial institutions are slowly re-financing agricultural production, albeit not directly to peasant farmers but through large plantation estates. These contract farming arrangements that are emerging away from state policy spaces in the agriculture sector, Mazwi and Muchetu argue, are promoting exploitative asymmetrical relations between the monopolistic and powerful plantation estates and the poor sugarcane small to medium farmers whose net incomes are being reduced through unfair pricing structure and high ............
