Msipa himself talks about how he spearheaded the exercise in the Midlands.
The rendition Msipa gives of the tensions, injustices and successes during the colonial period and beyond may not be devoid of bias but all the same, like Mashingaidze contends, "provides us politicians, policy makers, academics, students of history and committed Zimbabweans with a reflective mirror to review the moments that have defined the evolution of our nation's political, economic and social realities over the past five decades".
Besides telling readers about his upbringing in the Midlands and Matabeleland South provinces of the country, Msipa is clear that the region is much smaller than the nation/ country in how it drives the individual's zeal to bring about change in a country fraught with injustices and the lack of freedom.
...
Writes Msipa; "They appeared confused and subdued and did not share the excitement of the huge crowd that welcomed them at the airport. … I had not thought to wonder why Josiah Tongogara, Zanla's commander was not on the flight.
...
Despite the existence - elsewhere - of several theories and versions on how Tongogara met his demise, Msipa does not venture into this minefield. Instead, he chooses to concentrate on how the veteran nationalist had found the revered general in previous interactions.
...
John Nkomo and Msipa - the only PF Zapu ministers left in government - were to be fired in November 1984.
...
It is very important that it was Msipa who raised the Gukurahundi question up for discussion in Cabinet.
What is worrying, according to Msipa, is the level of atrocities that were carried out in the Matabeleland and Midlands provinces by the North Korea-trained Fifth Brigade.
...
What is astonishing is the sincerity and empathy with which Msipa recounts these massacres in which up to 20 000 people were killed.
Also, Msipa's perspective is also very unusual given that nobody has ever had the audacity to challenge what Mugabe says. He writes;
...
Msipa interestingly also touches on contemporary Zimbabwean politics.
...
Msipa also looks at the Zanu PF constitution. Reacting to Mugabe's urge that party members should watch out, "We now have some with unbridled ambitions. (p185), Msipa writes:
...
Probably this instalment would not be complete without mentioning the passion with which Msipa tackles the issue of the otherness. His book almost becomes a manual or even module in the study of tolerance and diversity - those twins that make the world live in peace.
Cephas Msipa was born on July 7, 1931 in a family of ten children, in Zvishavane District in the Midlands Province under Chief Masunda. During his illustrious political career, Msipa has worked with the late Willie Musarurwa, Ariston Chambati and George Kahari to form what used to be called the "Big Four" in PF Zapu.
...
Msipa has worked in Zimbabwe's post-independence government first as deputy minister of Youth, Sport and Recreation, Manpower Planning and Development and later as minister of Water Resources and Development and lastly as Governor of the Midlands Province.
