Mugabe and the White African

$15.99

Paperback
Also Available In
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 pulled strings.

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 burnt 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.

Outstanding - A MUST READ
5 stars By Shelley Holmden, Dec 19 2011
From the moment I picked up this book, I knew I was going to find it hard to put down again.  Ben Freeth takes you on an incredible journey as he describes events in Zimbabwe under the dictatorship of President Robert Mugabe and his plan to eradicate the country of White Africans.  This book with its honest and heartbreaking accounts is a huge witness of genuine faith.  Ben writes so personally that you feel such a part of what you are reading.  A very moving story.  It is simply an amazing read and I just cannot recommend it highly enough.
