Nine Things You Did Not Know About Robert Mugabe

AFRICANGLOBE - Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe is by no means the globe's most-loved man. He's been targeted by the West for his land reclamation policies, stripped of some of his honorary degrees, and the freedom to travel to Western countries.

Africa Needs More Men Like Mugabe

AFRICANGLOBE - “I used to hate Mugabe with passion for making Zimbabweans come in millions to our country South Africa, but now, my eyes have been opened.

What Is African Liberation

AFRICANGLOBE - Before we proceed to define what African liberation is, there is need to perceive and agree on the definition of who is an “African”. It would be a fatal mistake to assume that anybody on the African continent today including those who deny that identity is African.

In Zambia, also attacked on the same day, Kenneth Kaunda immediately promised revenge for the attacks on the ANC.

A wave of revolution. A wave of economic emancipation of Africa.

Zanu-PF And Zimbabwean Nationalism

AFRICANGLOBE - If there are any political parties in Africa known for nationalism today, certainly ZANU-PF will be counted among them.
