The World Justice Project and the UW School of Law present an evening exploring the rule of law in Zimbabwe.

The documentary "Beatrice Mtetwa and the Rule of Law" features one of the bravest lawyers in Africa  Beatrice Mtetwa in Zimbabwe. In spite of beatings by police, she has courageously defended in court those jailed by the Mugabe government  peace activists, journalists, opposition candidates, farmers that had their land confiscated, ordinary citizens that had the courage to speak up.

A discussion following the film screening will feature the film's Director, Lorie Conway; an overview of the Rule of Law Index findings for Zimbabwe by Juan Botero, Executive Director of the WJP; the Honorable Lyna N. Sarapai, a UW School of Law Barer Fellow from Kenya who will speak to the common legal challenges that citizens face in sub-Saharan Africa; and globally-renowned musician Thomas Mapfumo, in exile from Zimbabwe.

Capping the evening will be a Concert & Reception featuring Thomas Mapfumo and The Blacks Unlimited. Thomas Tafirenyika Mapfumo is known as "The Lion of Zimbabwe" and "Mukanya" for his immense popularity and for the political influence he wields through his music which is heard throughout the documentary.
