Cecil Rhodes whose British South Africa Company (BSAC) (1889-1965) helped conquer a commanding swath of the African continent in the name of the British Empire. His megalomania was “honored” by the British later naming an entire nation after him, “Rhodesia,” now modern-day Zimbabwe.

Nhamodzenyika - A lament for the people of Zimbabwe

You can make a real difference. Many have understandably become cynical about Zimbabwe, feeling that stagnation has set-in, that Zimbabweans have given up, that change can never come. But that is not true. The people remain resolute and committed. Help us by spreading the word about what is happening in Zimbabwe and by contributing financially to the cause. You may not be able to fight with us in the trenches, but you can join the struggle. Every time you tell someone about Zimbabwe....

Brave men and women are murdered—battered to death, thrown into dams, buried in unmarked graves. Untold numbers perish every week from preventable causes—women in childbirth, and the old and young alike from the AIDS epidemic that has swept across our country like a tsunami. The 'lucky' join our more than one million AIDS orphans, our little ones living like dogs on the street. Mugabe is unmoved in body or soul.

Thanks for your interest in the struggle against oppression in Zimbabwe. We need your help. The people continue to suffer. Zimbabwe may not be in the news, but make no mistake: thousands continue to die under the venal rule of Robert Mugabe and his party, Zanu (PF).

"I suppose Mugabe and his guerillas are not responsible for the terrorist atrocities that we saw during the Rhodesian bush war?I find it amazing how Mugabe's scribes will point fingers at others, but neatly forget about their own history.... During the Rhodesian war we saw atrocities that would break many a grown man. I think that it is time that they faced up to their past and just admitted it." The Bearded Man

Rhodesia - "They line up in push-up stance. They’re holding that position for 45 minutes in the sun, many of them starting to shake violently. Eventually, the first guy fell. They took him around the back of the building, knocked him out and fired a shot into the air. They continued bring men to the back of the building. The poor guy on the end started crying and going crazy and he finally broke and started talking." J.Ross Baughman 1977

    Any Picture can tell a story, and to one group of people doing push-ups in the hot sun under armed guard is barbaric. To another group of people, gathering information from a group of terrorists, to try to stop the slaughter of men women and children of any race, required great resolve. Lest We Forget

    Rhodesia, and South Africa, under white rule, gave Africans a better chance. South Africa is turning in Zimbabwe where marxism and black tribal rule of law, is much worse than these pictures are. People, especially white people, love to judge Africa, from the comfort of their western lifestyles. The end of the day, African culture is not western, and the term “savages” did not just come to happen. In Africa, you adapt to African culture, or you die as an individual or group. Tribal culture, and the strongest group is the group that survive. Go to Africa with a “white privileged” mindset of “human rights” and you will die sooner rather than later. Africa is not Europe, nor is it the US. As a white man, you adapt to black culture, at whatever cost. If you have no where to go, you don’t have an option. Henri April 25 2012

On the night of June 23, 1978, Elim Mission in the Rhodesian Eastern Highlands was subjected to the worst massacre of missionaries yet experienced. Terry Blocksidge reported in the Sunday Mail (Salisbury): Eight British missionaries and four young children - including a three-week-old baby - were bayoneted to death by terrorists on Rhodesia's Eastern border on Friday night in the worst massacre of whites since the six-year-old war began.

The earliest permanent white residents of Rhodesia were missionaries, and it is significant that their lives were respected by the most warlike of the country's tribes. In an era of generally unbridled savagery, the innate chivalry of primitive warriors and the strict discipline imposed by their leaders seem to have been all that ensured the survival of the devoted little bands of men and women.. In the mid-l 970s intensification of the terrorist war in Rhodesia changed all that..MI 1978

In 1977, J. Ross Baughman was documenting the bloody guerrilla war that broke out in Rhodesia as the minority white rule slowly disintegrates there; the attacks on anti-government guerillas were especially fierce and Baughman rode with a cavalry unit, Grey’s Scouts

Rhodesia - Be A Man Among Men

All politics in Africa is tribal. Politics, religion, colour, are just new names. Parties are organized along tribal lines. If two tribes are enemies (and they are nearly all enemies), and one fights for the terrorists, the others will either fight for the whites or form their own “terr” groups and fight each other. The three Marxist terrorist armies in Angola reported each other’s troop movements to the Portuguese for years. The Frente Nacional, for example (FNLA) was made up of Bakongo tribesm
