Mozambique: Tribute to Ian Smith

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, History

“Ian Smith died today at the age of 88 in Cape Town. The man who fought the English over the independence of Rhodesia (Zimbabwe). For he is a true African Hero (there are also blond Africans!), we celebrate the man who still young went to Europe to fight Hitler and Nazism, and who, on returning to Rhodesia, contributed remarkably to transform his home country in one of the most developed in the whole of Africa”.
