Many of us over 60 are counted out when part-time jobs come up despite our collective wisdom and abilities.

To counter some of this prejudice I have dispensed with sending my CV and have instead created The Complete Picture, an animated ninety second overview of my life to date @




The Fear: the Last Days of Robert Mugabe by Peter Godwin

You are here: Home / Blog / Foreign Affairs / The Fear: the Last Days of Robert Mugabe by Peter Godwin
En route to Cape Town to see my son, Jack I read The Fear, the Last Days of Robert Mugabe by Peter Godwin. I'm a fan of the author having previously read Mukiwa: A White Boy in Africa

Godwin is banned in Zimbabwe (he now lives in NY) but during 2008 he returned at frequent intervals to risk his life to catalogue the appalling atrocities which Mugabe and his evil henchmen had inflicted daily on MDC supporters despite the results of the General Election. Mugabe failed to accept the will of the people but he's done that for the past 30 years. He is sick. Members of his secret service and army need to be brought to book by the International Court at The Hague once Mugabe is dead.

The West has stood by as Mugabe has been allowed to bring a country to its knees killing over 50,000 Zimbabweans.
All this is covered in The Fear and more. Godwin's portrait of this sad country, which was once the bread basket of east Africa, is painful. My how Mbeki and Zuma have let the peoples of Africa down. They have been Mugabe's puppets.
