9780745955469: Mugabe and the White African

An intimate account of one family's astonishing bravery in the face of brutality, as well as perhaps the outside world's only real glimpse of what it is like to live inside the terror of Mugabe's Zimbabwe Ben Freeth has an extraordinary story to tell. Like that of many white farmers, his family's land was "reclaimed" by Mugabe's government for redistribution—but Ben's family fought back. Appealing to international law, they instigated a suit against Mugabe's government in the SADC, the Southern African equivalent of NATO. The case was deferred time and again while Mugabe's men applied political pressure to have the case thrown out. But after Freeth and his parents-in-law were abducted and beaten within inches of death in 2008, the SADC deemed any further delay to be an obstruction of justice. The case was heard, and successful on all counts. But the story doesn't end there—in 2009, the family farm was burned to the ground. The fight for justice in Zimbabwe is far from over; this book is for anyone who wants to see into the heart of one of today's hardest places, and how human dignity flourishes even in the most adverse circumstances.

About the Author:

Ben Freeth is a British-born Zimbabwean farmer who successfully sued Mugabe in an international court in 2008. His family's story was made into a widely viewed documentary, Mugabe and the White African, which won several international awards and was short-listed for an Oscar nomination for Best Documentary Feature in 2010. Desmond Tutu is a South African activist and Christian cleric who rose to worldwide fame during the 1980s as an opponent of apartheid. He has campaigned to fight against AIDS, tuberculosis, homophobia, transphobia, poverty, and racism, and is a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, the Albert Schweitzer Prize for Humanitarianism, the Gandhi Peace Prize, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. John Sentamu is the second most senior cleric in the Church of England.

Review:

"Superb . . . Thought-provoking, distressing, shockingly tense, and always very sad, it is surely one of the best documentaries of the year."  —Time Out on the documentary

"Potent mix of suspense, pathos, and indignation."  —Variety on the documentary

"Freeth lays bare a beautiful but lawless land fouled by fear. A 'Clockwork Orange' state where racism, greed and violence are ultimately humbled by almost unimaginable courage. Richly described, bravely chronicled and utterly compelling."  —Mike Thompson, BBC Radio's Foreign Affairs Correspondent
