I recently read Peter Godwins memoir. It was chilling and I am glad to hear him on your program. He is a brave man to keep going back to his country. His mother should still be there and I did hope to hear that personal bit,as to her well being
Thanks for your efforts

When I was in Cape Town, South Africa, I met a number of Zimbabweans. One was a lawyer who had left years prior, but was unable to find adequate work in South Africa. Most of the sellers of African-themed items on the side of road were from Zimbabwe.
