Petina Gappah plans to join Zimbabwe civil service

Zimbabwean writer Petina Gappah plans to join the Zimbabwean civil service after an imminent year-long writing fellowship in Berlin, Germany.

Gappah, a respected international lawyer, wrote on her Facebook wall that she is keen to help Zimbabwe negotiate trade deals with the international community. Wrote Gappah:

I am off to Berlin as planned, to finish book 4 and maybe 5 and 6. After that, it is back to Harare! I will do what I had originally planned to do when I studied international law back in 1998. I will apply to join the foreign ministry or the trade ministry. I have always been an international civil servant, now I hope to be a national one.

Gappah, who until recently was working for the Geneva-based the Advisory Centre on WTO Law (ACWL), wants to help Zimbabwe negotiate its future relationship with post Brexit-United Kingdom.
