Zimbabwe

When I lived in this beautiful, exciting country it was called The Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland under the premiership of Sir Roy Welensky. The winds of change (Harold Macmillan) were beginning to blow and in quite quick succession Nyasaland broke away and became Malawi and Northern Rhodesia became Zambia. I had moved back to South Africa before Ian Smith’s Unilateral Declaration of Independence and so, missed the guerrilla war and the country’s transition to Zimbabwe. My wife’s family remained in the country on their tobacco farms until some twenty years later when their properties were expropriated by the Government without recompense of any kind.

I have produced slideshows of various parts of this magnificent country which should be of interest to those still residing there and those who have moved elsewhere in the world but retain a deep love for the country and it’s people.

Please hold your cursor over the Zimbabwe icon above and click on the slideshow you wish to see.

Enjoy!
