The operation continued throughout the month of June, and affected virtually every town and rural business centre in the country. In this introduction to the ‘Hidden Dimensions …’ Maurice Vambe argues that the treatment of people as ‘human dirt’ demands that we rethink the notion of citizenship in Zimbabwe. The volume goes on to consider the historical antecedents to the operation, its hidden and unspoken consequences, its representations in the media and official responses that were made to it.
