Dear reader, welcome to my website. My name is Tendai Murisa. I am a development practitioner and researcher in the areas of public policy, agency, social movements, philanthropy, NGOs, and pro-poor development across Africa. I was educated at the University of Zimbabwe (BSc Hons, political science), Leeds University (MA, development studies) and Rhodes University (DPhil, sociology). For more than 15 years, I have gained experience working across Africa.

I initially started out as a research fellow at the African Institute for Agrarian Studies (now rebranded as the Sam Moyo Africa Institute for Agrarian Studies-SMAIAS). In 2009, I joined the Dakar-based TrustAfrica (a pan-African foundation) as a program officer responsible for the agriculture advocacy project and took on more portfolios over time, including the work against illicit financial flows out of the continent. I became program director and later executive director of TrustAfrica.

In 2018, I went on to establish SIVIO Institute, a think tank which focuses on citizen’s inclusion in socio-economic and policy change processes, where I serve as the Executive Director. My publications are on agency, agrarian reforms (especially in Zimbabwe and elsewhere in Africa), citizens and civil society, financial inclusion, philanthropy, social entrepreneurship, and social policy in peer reviewed journals and book chapters. I have also edited three books on Zimbabwe and Southern Africa. On this site, you can also access my blogs under thoughts. I hope you enjoy the reads and find what you are looking for.

Democracy Series

The Democracy and… blog series is part of an ongoing attempt at different conversations on the public space, politics, and citizens. The ten blogs build upon the material covered in my earlier book ‘Rethinking Citizens and Democracy.’ The objective remains the same- a pursuit of deepening democratic practice in Zimbabwe and across Africa by pursuing a largely ignored subject- the role of citizens beyond elections.
