Where We Have Hope: A Memoir of Zimbabwe

by

Where We Have Hope: A Memoir of Zimbabwe Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

American-born journalist Andrew Meldrum was seized and expelled from Zimbabwe in May 2003, forced to leave for writing "bad things" about President Robert Mugabe's regime. Here, Meldrum describes what it meant to live through this period of hope and tragedy, and how he was harassed, arrested, imprisoned, and tried.

Synopsis:

Where We Have Hope is the gripping memoir of a young American journalist. In 1980, Andrew Meldrum arrived in a Zimbabwe flush with new independence, and he fell in love with the country and its optimism. But over the twenty years he lived there, Meldrum watched as President Robert Mugabe consolidated power and the government evolved into despotism. In May 2003, Meldrum, the last foreign journalist still working in the dangerous and chaotic nation, was illegally forced to leave his adopted home. His unflinching work describes the terror and intimidation Mugabes government exercised on both the press and citizens, and the resiliency of Zimbabweans determined to overturn Mugabe and demand the free society they were promised.
