Sustainable Employment Generation in Developing Countries
25-27 January, Nairobi

GUY MHONE (1943-2005) was the leading economist to have worked across
post-colonial Southern Africa. His employers included the International
Labour Organisation in Lusaka, Harare and Maseru, the Southern African
Political Economic Series Trust, the South African Department of Labour,
and the University of the Witwatersrand; his heart and labours were
largely for the benefit of progressive civil society organisations,
especially organised labour. Mhone’s books included The Political
Economy of a Dual Labour Market in Africa (1982); Malawi at the
Crossroads (edited, 1992); The Case for Sustainable Development in
Zimbabwe (coauthored, 1992); and The Informal Sector in Southern Africa
