9780595383085: The Rape of Zimbabwe

This is the true story of the flamboyant Ricky Wilson, often referred to by his compatriots as "Tricky Ricky", who, with his wife and young daughter, emigrated to the then Rhodesia. The opportunities that presented themselves very soon after their arrival, and what he did to acquire wealth, would have been beyond his dreams in the U.K. The book tells of the political settlement, majority rule, and change of government to a black administration led by Robert Mugabe and the trials and tribulations that went with it. Ricky's direct involvement with most of Robert Mugabe's ministers and his Government vividly conveys the trials and tribulations of African politics and the very rife corruption that was-and still is-throttling the country. So many of the country's prosperous settlers who had become the economic backbone of the country have flown to safer havens, and Ricky's plight is representative of many who have had no option but to leave. In a very real sense this is the inside story of a country that has been raped, now reduced to famine and rough injustice by the ruling thugs that have plundered the resources, internal and from outside "aid", to feather their own nests and Swiss bank accounts.
