A personal reflection by Jonah Gokova, Zimbabwe, first published in Gender and religious education
Jonah Gokova was born in 1956 in Zimbabwe. He is a trained theologian and belongs to the Methodist church in Zimbabwe. He leads the Christian non-governmental organization Ecumenical Support Service (ESS). For a long time ESS sticks up for the compliance with human rights in the country, for more democracy and additionally for the commitment of gender justice. In courses they cooperate with different churches and offer training courses for church personnel. Furthermore Jonah Gokova is the founder of the men forum Padare, in the Zimbabwean Shona-tradition, a place of meeting and exchange, which argue with questions of gender seen from the man perspective. Due to his public commitment he received threats in the last years. The work of ESS was kept from the police under surveillance. In the year 2008 he had to leave, for his own security, the country with his wife and his two daughters for some weeks. However, he continues getting involved in men and gender questions in Zimbabwe.

Gonda: Jonah Gokova chairman ..., 3 Jan 2013 [cached]
Gonda: Jonah Gokova chairman of Padare, a men's forum that advocates for gender justice, says the prime minister's marital saga exposes the serious challenges relating to how men behave, and is also a clear reflection of the increased vulnerability of women in the country.
However, Gokova says while it is clear that Mr. Tsvangirai has made some blunders, the tone of the women's engagement is also - in his words - "vindictive' .
Gokova: And it's either I have you or I destroy you. It is accepted that the prime minister has made his blunders and so on and so forth and I'm sure he is aware of it and he knows it and he needs to correct that. But also I think he needs to look at the situation in terms of representing situations, the role of partisan media and the politicization of the whole situation - which makes the whole situation very, very ugly.
