Ny dokumentar om Mugabe:



About the film

Michael Campbell is one of the few hundred white farmers left in Zimbabwe since President Robert Mugabe began his violent 'Land Reform' program in 2000. Since then the country has descended into chaos. In 2008 Mike took the unprecedented step of challenging President Robert Mugabe in an International Court; accusing Robert Mugabe and his government of racial discrimination and violations of basic human rights. What follows is an intimate, moving and often terrifying account of one man and his family’s extraordinary courage in the face of overwhelming injustice and brutality. Set against the tumultuous 2008 Presidential elections Mugabe and the White African follows Mike and son-in-law Ben Freeth's harrowing attempt to save their farm and with it the homes and livelihoods of 500 black workers and their families. Filmed over 12 months, a gripping courtroom drama unfolds whilst all the time Mike, his family and the farm workers face the all too real threats of Mugabe's wrath on the farm. After months of frightening threats and a horrific attack the Court’s judges finally rule on Mike’s case. What will Mugabe's reaction be towards them for daring to bring the case?

Much of this film was shot covertly. To have been caught filming would have meant imprisonment.

Daily Nation, July 26, 2010: Zimbabwe has threatened to close 9,000 foreign owned firms after they ignored a deadline to submit plans on how they intend to release some of their shareholding to locals. President Robert Mugabe’s government wants the foreign owned companies with a value of over $500,000 to transfer 51 per cent of their shareholding to locals. State media reports indicated that only 480 out of a provisional list of 9,577 companies had submitted proposals on how they intend to empower locals - Mugabe may close 9,000 foreign firms

American Thinker, September 22, 2010: For many years the famine plagued children in southeastern Zimbabwe used the small, hard stones common to the region in their home-made slings and catapults to hunt birds for food. When it was learned that the stones were actually diamonds, the rush was on. People from all walks of life were drawn to the remote fields of Marange hoping to escape the crippling poverty and starvation that has gripped their country since Robert Mugabe came to power. When word of the miraculous discovery reached President Mugabe, the incorruptible leader wasted no time in sending troops to Marange to secure the diamond fields for the benefit of his regime. According to Andrew Malone of the UK Daily Mail, Mugabe's soldiers acted in "characteristically brutal fashion, shooting hundreds of people, setting Alsatian dogs on others and raping women and children." Mugabe's forces drove out the poor unarmed prospectors and seized control of the region. "Today, the fields are a military zone-and anyone caught there faces being beaten to death" - Robert Mugabe's bloody diamond deal with China

The Scotsman, January 17, 2011: Zimbabwe's defence minister has said that the chief executives of foreign firms will have to go live on national radio to denounce Western sanctions or face losing 90 per cent of their company shareholding to Robert Mugabe. Emmerson Mnangagwa, a close ally of the Zimbabwean president, told party supporters this weekend that the authorities were "in the process of rounding up" the bosses of foreign businesses still operating in the struggling southern African country. "We will ask them if they support sanctions or not," Mr Mnangagwa said. "Those who indicate that they do not support sanctions will be asked to go live on national radio and tell the nation and the rest of the world their company does not support sanctions." Mr Mugabe's party has vowed to make sure sanctions are lifted in 2011. But it is increasingly apparent that the Zanu-PF top brass plans to try to do this by intimidation - and not by cleaning up their rights record - Zimbabwe: Foreign firms forced to back Mugabe's sanctions protest

NewsDay, July 25, 2013: President Robert Mugabe on Tuesday took a swipe at homosexuality vowing to continue criminalising the practice and dismissed demands that it should be treated as a human rights issue. Mugabe also threatened to behead homosexuals in the country and promised to uplift the status of women whom he said had a big national duty to perform whenever they deliver babies. Mugabe, who was addressing a rally at Aerodrome ground, told thousands of Zanu PF supporters that Zimbabwe would never accept homosexuality under whatever condition. He described homosexuals as “worse than pigs, goats and birds”. “If you take men and lock them in a house for five years and tell them to come up with two children and they fail to do that, then we will chop off their heads,” Mugabe said emphasising that he would ruthlessly deal with homosexuality - Mugabe chides homosexuals again
