Gukurahundi in Zimbabwe

£16.99

Product description

The Gukurahundi was a series of massacres of Ndebele civilians carried out by the Zimbabwe National Army from early 1983 to late 1987. It derives from a Shona language term which loosely translates to "the early rain which washes away the chaff before the spring rains". This is just one account of the many atrocities that took place between 1980 and 1988 in Matabeleland and the Midlands of Zimbabwe, where an estimated 20 000 people died under the terror of Robert Mugabe and his army. It includes a forward by His Grace Pius Ncube, Archbishop of Bulawayo, and an introduction by Elinor Sisulu. This is a vital piece of literature on African affairs. The first/fly title page has a gift inscription which has been obscured by over-writing.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
