Harare, Zimbabwe. The National Convergence Platform was formally launched at Kentucky Airport Hotel in December 13, 2019. A new initiative involving the Zimbabwe Heads of Christian Denominations (a grouping of all Zimbabwe’s major church associations) and civil society institutions, the National Convergence platform was created to create a space to host deliberations on the social, economic and political challenges facing Zimbabwe. The opening gathering attracted more than 1,000 participants drawn from churches, civil society organizations, labor unions, academia, business and professional bodies, Chapter 12 Commissions (formal bodies established under Zimbabwean law), chaplains from the police and students. The Peace Appeal’s partners, the Zimbabwe Council of Churches, played a lead role in organizing the event, and will serve as the secretariat for the new body.
