Description

We invite you to this exciting book event for The Struggle Continues by Senator David Coltart. We are delighted to announce that this event will be held in Sydney on August 10, with opening remarks from former Prime Minister, John Howard.

“A must read for anyone that is intrigued by Zimbabwean politics and history, but also those interested in the power of our common humanity and the strength that is inside us all.” Kerry Kennedy, President of the Robert F. Kennedy Foundation (USA)

It is set to be the most authoritative book to date of the last sixty years of Zimbabwe's history: From the obstinate racism of Ian Smith that provoked Rhodesia's unilateral declaration of independence from Britain in 1965, to the civil war of the 1970s, the Gukurahundi genocide of the 1980s, Robert Mugabe's war on white landowners, and the struggles waged by the MDC. A key theme throughout the book is the role of political extremists who have consistently subverted Zimbabwe's chances of realising its true potential.

Senator David Coltart is one of the most prominent political and human rights figures in Zimbabwe. Born and schooled in Zimbabwe, he trained in law at the University of Cape Town... Over the years, Coltart has been threatened, detained, spuriously prosecuted and has survived several direct attempts on his life. For three decades, Coltart has kept detailed notes and records of all his work, including a meticulous diary of cabinet dealings, the source material for much of his book. Read more
