I have often wondered why on earth I embarked on such an ambitious project but, bottom line was that I had an interesting story to tell if I bound up eight years of research into a descriptive historical novel based on the truths and untruths of that research.

Then I realised I had inherited the perfect vehicle to do it!

Having been born and bred in Tsholotsho, the three best friends of my childhood years, were Ndebele boys - and they went on to lead such diverse lives, that between the four of us, we could bring to life the hopes, aspirations, desperations and increasing isolation of our country, covering its history in a vivid and dramatic way.

Book One takes us from 1840, the formation of the Matebele Kingdom by Mzilikazi, through Lobengula’s reign, on to the carpet baggers, empire builders and early administration of Southern Rhodesia (the last of Britain’s colonies) to finish at UDI - the Unilateral Declaration of Independence by Prime Minister Ian Smith.

Book Two takes the four characters through the war and sanctions years to 1980 and Book Three will cover the Mugabe era.

I’d love to catch up with you on Saturday July 13th from 1’00 p.m. You can download the information piece (see below - right) by clicking here. If you have any questions, ring the Library on (07) 3407 0258
