The Badza-Nhari Rebellion is the uprising led by war front ZANLA army leaders Thomas Nhari whose real name was Raphael Chinyanganya and Dakari Badza against the ZANU High Command in Lusaka, Zambia in November 1974 during the Second Chimurenga. The rebellion was supported by supported by Noel Mukono and Simpson Mutambanengwe. The rebels were said to have been motivated by the belief that the High Command, based in Lusaka, were leading extravagant lifestyles while the war effort on the front suffered and contrary to the party's Maoist principles which the party's ascribed to. It has been suggested that the Rhodesians Security Forces sponsored the rebellion but this has been denied by some witnesses of the rebellion.[1] The rebellion was unsuccessful.
