His political activities lead to Nkomo being retained in a remote location in a national park close to the Mozambique border. Nkomo had many visitors for a number of years, but as time went on visitor restrictions were put in place and, later, he was moved to a more secure location.

Nkomo provides a good insight to the constant bickering and discontentment between the different political and guerrilla groups during the war, though the detail as to why the different groups were so far apart and unable to unite is missing. He describes Bishop Muzorewa selection to front the ANC office and is scornful that the Bishop thought he had any support from the people.

Nkomo writes about the poor conditions his trainee troops faced in Tanzania, the lack of food, badly treated by the Chinese instructors and the terrible deaths that occurred due to constant in-fighting between the trainees. I felt saddened by the terrible loss of life, people were just cannon fodder. I wonder if their families found out what happened to their children.

Nkomo did not explain why the Chinese were providing the military training as he did not have any ties to China. Nkomo spent his time travelling the world, seeking international support and he describes the responses he received from various countries.

In the end, Russia provided a lot of support, though it took a long time and Cuban support. I read in another book written by an influential Russian, that the Russians did not hold Nkomo in high regard, contributing to the lengthy time before any support was forthcoming. During those talks, Nkomo prepared an invasion force. Russia increased training and provided military aircraft as ZIPRA geared itself up to move towards a full scale conflict.

Nkomo says that it was all secretly done, however, the British knew about it and they also understood the vital importance of getting agreement regardless of what it was, in as short a time as possible. This explains why the Lancaster House agreements fell desperately short of a suitable agreed constitution, failed to remove the oppressive laws that had been put in place as a result of the war and completely ignored resolving the land issue.

Lord Carrington was under great pressure to get a solution, otherwise the escalation of the war with the additional Russian armoury could have been a complete disaster. Three months later, Zimbabwe elections were held, despite repeated reports of intimadation. Prior to the results announcement, Mugabe said that he had won 56 seats, infact he won 55 seats. The paper votes were flown to Britain and then burned. There is no historical evidence of the vote numbers.

In the future, I am sure historians will want to understand this in more detail - as the process is suspicious and I have had personal accounts that some of the ballot boxes were empty. Without the evidence it will never be known.

The True Life Story Of Joshua Nkomo

From my earliest youth I thirsted for freedom. When I became a man, I understood that I could not be free while my country and its people were subject to a government in which they had no say. Yet even then the cause of freedom for the people had not prevailed. We had won our national right to independence, but our human rights were still suppressed. This book is not a history - one day if I am spared, I may contribute to the writing of one with a happy ending, but this story has no end. Instead it is my personal record of a life that has played a part in history, and it is also the work of an active politician who wishes to see things change for the better in the lives of ordinary people of his country. I have been called Father Zimbabwe.
