Cry Zimbabwe

Independence – Twenty Years On

Peter Stiff



This timely book deals with Zimbabwe’s independence, the elections crooked in ZANU-PF’s favour in 1980 and at every election since. South Africa’s destabilisation, genocide by Mugabe’s 5-Brigade in Matabeleland, Mugabe’s failed attempt to bring in his faulty constitution, the farm invasions, the murders and the mayhem in the lead-up to the 2000 elections. It is the up-to-date story of the destruction of a country by a president who is most likely clinically insane.


Most of what is written in this book is factual, there is no question about this. Stiff's strength is in having access to many documents, and people, that were, and still are, around regarding the post-Independence history of Zimbabwe. - Amazon Review
