Zimbabwe/ 4. Current issues in cultural policy development and debate  

4.2.4 Cultural diversity and inclusion policies

The majority group in Zimbabwe is the Shona people, who make up 75% of the population, followed by the Ndebele who make up 17%. Other minority groups, including whites and Asians, make up 8% (CSO, 2005). The majority of the Shona ethnic groups are found in seven provinces, the Ndebele in three provinces. Asians and whites are found in the urban areas of most provinces. It must be noted, however, that due to internal migration, most ethnic groups are found in almost all parts of Zimbabwe.
