Description

No doubt. North-South relationship involving poor and rich countries is very convoluted; based and built on exploitative, unequal and unfair equilibria. It is purely jockey-horse-like connubium that serves one party as it disserves the other. This is why deconstructing and detoxifying this relationship is sine qua non. The author argues that the parties in this relationship must revisit it to make sure it equally benefits both for the benefit of the whole world. Importantly, the major question posed is: Why did the two global halves maintain and tolerate such toxic rapport while knowingly it is but colonial and unjust? The question is answered in this academic treatise which asks the parties to hark back; and thereby do justice to each other by viewing themselves as humans with shared needs and future whose lesson from the past may buttress them to be major thespians in realising world peace. This is because their parasitic relationship has fueled many conflicts revolving around the struggle for controlling resources in the South in order to sell to the North.

AcknowledgmentsI acknowledge the humungous contribution my wife, partner and the best friend ever, Nesaa, made in the preparations of this volume. Listening to dry academic stuff has never been amusing and easy, especially for the person whose profession is completely different. Our young children, Ng’ani, Nkuzi and Nkwazi Jr. too, had a lot to offer however unbeknownst to them. Nesaa used to take them for swimming lessons alone in summer while I was busy researching and writing. More importantly, I acknowledge exceptionally sincere and bottomless support I got from my brother, friend and mentor, Professor Sean Byrne (Manitoba University) and with his wife Professor Jessica Senehi who have always stood by me. Jessica and Sean, I am proud of you really. My brother and friend professor Eliakim Sibanda did a lot to challenge my rationale. So, too, my brother, Professor Munyaradzi Mawere (Great Zimbabwe University) did a great job to keep on encouraging me to take the task up, apart from reviewing this book. Ndugu Willy M. Mutunga, PhD, former Kenya’s Chief Justice and President of the Supreme Court has always been instrumental to me. Thanks brother. As a tradition, I acknowledge my readers who became friends and part of my family thanks to reading my ideas and some commenting on them such as Sirili Akko (Arusha-Tanzania) and Salih Ibrahim Hassan aka Mr. Darfur, (Winnipeg MB), among others. I, also, acknowledge PhD students of the Arthur V. Mauro Centre, St. Paul, University of Manitoba (2015), especially those who were interested in the Africa affairs, particularly my best friend Chuck Egerton for many discussions we had on Africa and what can be done to address conflicts, poverty and underdevelopment resulting from North-South exploitative Jokey Horse-Jockey North-South Rapport. Similarly, I acknowledge my friend Ray Loewen, president of the West Park Motor, Altona, MB, Canada who helped me in the coming book on Terrorism. Ray, you are great man.

Foreword I must make a clean breast from the outset. I have personal as well as academic interests in the topic this volume deals with. My aim is to tweak or add up to the dialogue that has been going on for many years since the Global North invaded and occupied the Global South under colonialism and thereafter, up until now, under neocolonialism andjokey-horse-jockey rapport. Being one of billions of victims of the exploitative nature of the relationship between the duo, my experience and views can add up to see to it that the said relationship is deconstructed, reconstructed for the peace of the world. I, therefore, must state it clearly that one of the aims of this volume, apart from contributing the dialogue academically, seeks to propose some solutions to the problems revolving around the relationship between two unequal equals; if I may use the term. Hypothetically, I can comfortably argue that many conflicts the latter experiences have the hallmarks of colonialism and unfair relationship and coexistence all perpetrated by the former. In tackling the problems resulting from this exploitative and somehow nugatory relationship namely conflict, poverty and underdevelopment, the book looks atpraxisand theories seeking to decontaminate, demythologise, deconstruct, and reconstruct the relationship in order to usher equality, equity, justice and parity in.
