Cecil John Rhodes *the AmaMpondo king *and a deadly short ball by John Clarke 28 November 2014 The tragic death of batsman Phil Hughes brings to mind another tragedy on the cricket field a hundred years ago The tragic accidental death of Australian cricketer Phillip Hughes from a fast short ball which struck him on the neck has been lamented around the world. Such incidents are so rare as to be considered freakish. Yet a similar incident occurred in South Africa in 1901 when a 38-year-old attorney Edward Jones, batting for Kokstad Cricket Club was struck by on the chest by a fast ball. His funeral “was the largest seen in Kokstad”, with both black and white mourners in their thousands gathering to weep at the untimely death of a remarkable young man. The exceptional and improbable throng was because Jones had lived in the same manner in which he died: by being involved in improbable, exceptional and freakish life vs death situations in his devotion to seeking justice for the oppressed. Nicknamed ...

Zambia 50 years after colonial rule Sata Charles Mwewa IN 2011, I published Zambia: Struggles of My People. In this book I rather presciently predict the future of Zambia from what has gone before. I detail our struggles from pre-colonial days to colonial days to post-colonial days. It is documentation in time of the real struggles of the Zambian people. It is barely three years after Struggles of My People and as I look back I am still touched by the quandary of my people. 2014 announced a Zambian Jubilee, 50 years of self-rule, of self-determination and of freedom from colonial bondage from the former British Empire. It was on October 24th, 1964 when the red-green-orange-black flag was lifted and a new nation called Zambia was created. She was no longer a habitat of Cecil John Rhodes (Northern Rhodesia). The people of Zambia had become tired of being “boys” and wanted to be “men.” Today after 50 years of that so-called independence we are still left with so many questions. Foremost among these q ...

Let’s upgrade our heroes’ shrines WHEN we cherish our Independence, we tend to only marvel at tangible achievements such as land ownership and the eradication of racial segregation. Rarely do we put to the fore the process that brought about this tremendous achievement – a process that involved the sacrifice of thousands of lives of freedom fighters. Not only that. But also the massacre of innocent women and children both inside the country and outside, by the lethal weapons of the repressive Ian Smith’s colonial regime. We have examples of places like Nyadzonia and Chimoio in Mozambique, Freedom Camp in Zambia and Kandeya and Kangara in Mt Darwin and Uzumba respectively. At these centres and many others thousands were massacred by the Rhodesian regime in a desperate bid to discourage us from fighting for our Independence. Outside the Heroes Day, commemorated every year in July, it looks like very little attention if any, let alone respect, is paid to those who died to liberate our country. In fac ...

Cecil John Rhodes was born July 5, 1853. His 1st Will was after his heart attack in 1877 & found a secret society that would extend British rule. He didn't die until 25 years later on March 26, 1902. He had 8 brothers & he went to help his oldest brother, Herbert in 1870 in South Africa. He grew cotton with his brother. They staked a claim in a newly developed diamond field in Kimberly. In 1880 he formed a mining company. He had his Will setup to provide a series of scholarships to Oxford University & its known as the most prestigious scholarship & the 1st large scale programme of international scholarship widely considered the most prestigious.

THE LEGACY OF CECIL JOHN RHODES. Dont you think that the modern foundation of Zimbabwe was designed and built by Cecil John Rhodes ? Should we just condemn him because he was white or because he was a coloniser ? Without him do you think Zimbabwe would be what it is today? Someone suggested that we put him at Heroes Acre . Really . Can Rhodes be a hero ? What do you think ? As for crimes against the people I think Africans are committing more serious crimes and violence against each other than was done by the colonisers . We lack brotherly compassion .
I have a feeling that a large chunk of Zimbabweans are in favor of keeping Cecil John Rhodes' remains on Matopos. I must confess that I am not amazed at all. For over 33 years, President Mugabe and others who share similar thoughts have held arms with this section of Zimbabweans to shield the grave of a British entrepreneur genius. Such is his high status in great zimbabwe, he remains a very significant person in our nation 's troubled history. Such is our indigenous mind! Cecil John Rhodes is unrivaled as a businessman. He falls into the class of capitalist that build the fortresses of Western capitalism, an industrial system that build the West 's economic dominance. It was his company, Central Search Association and the London-based Exploring Company Ltd that secured the royal charter, a document that gave it authority to colonize Zimbabwe. Our great ignorance of thinking that Britain colonized Zimbabwe when in fact it is Britain 's capitalist who are themselves the colonizers. The honey bees of their ...

LANDMARKS OF OUR INDEPENDENCE 2 1896 Zimbabwe's first war of independence called The First Chimurenga took place in 1896 and lasted for only one year to mid 1897. The war was instigated by a Ndebele chief Mlimo, a Zezuru chief Mashayamombe and another Mazowe chief Hwata. The war ended with the assassination of Mlimo and Hwata together with his spirit medium Nehanda Nyakasikana in 1897. Nehanda was Chaminuka's sister, an old Chitungwiza based spirit medium who was killed by Lobengula in 1883 after foretelling the invasion of the country by whites that year. Chaminuka is the greatest ever spirit medium to emerge in Zimbabwe to date. Lobengula finally paid his sin of killing Chaminuka when Star Jameson, Cecil John Rhodes' friend invaded his kraal in Bulawayo in 1883, resulting in him fleeing his kingdom and later his death. The British South African Police took firm control of the country after the assassinations. 1890-1953 The Rise of Rhodesia There were 222 000 European settlers by 1923 in Zimbabwe up from ...
