Mugabe and the White African Summary

Mugabe and the White African by Ben Freeth

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 via the SADC (The Southern African Development Community). 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.

Mugabe and the White African Reviews

"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

"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
