Zimbabwe -

a lesson in how to destroy

Christian civilisation

 

The “scars of colonialism” are mentioned frequently in modern discussion. However, it would only be fair to note that the most obvious scars of colonialism have included: roads, railways, bridges, schools, hospitals, churches, law courts, shops, written languages, medicines, the Gospel, the wheel and a host of other extremely helpful and important blessings.

Dr Richard Wood is probably the world's leading historian on Rhodesian political and military history. Dr Wood is a Commonwealth Scholar, Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and graduate of Rhodes and Edinburgh Universities.  Those who are interested will find tabs listing his books and some very readable on line articles which will give an in depth understanding of Rhodesia's history from 1950-1980.

His latest work: Kwete - No! covering the years 1969-72 has recently been published. (see also Recommended Reading for this and Dr. Wood's other books)

Students of African history may be interested to know that in 2011 Rinderpest (cattle plague) finally joined smallpox as a major disease which has been wiped from the face of the planet. The major outbreak in the 1890s killed 80 to 90 percent of all cattle in Southern Africa and, together with the withdrawal of most of the BSAP for the “Jameson Raid”, was a major contributory cause of the native rising in Rhodesia in 1896.

 
 

A rare recording by Dixie Kwankwa dating back to 1960; both evocative and sad - not the best quality but the best I can manage from an old record!
