In 1959 Maurice Nyagumbo joined the African National Congress and later that year he was detained. He spent most of the subsequent years until 1979 in prison in Rhodesia. During his time in detention he wrote a book, With the People: An Autobiography From the Zimbabwe Struggle, which was published soon after independence.


This autobiography is an entertaining and illuminating account of the life of a leading Zimbabwe nationalist politician. - Barry Munslow, ROAPE


Maurice Nyagumbo was a veteran Zimbabwean nationalist. He committed suicide in 1989, aged 64, by drinking rat poison after being charged with perjury during so-called Willowgate scandal.
