There was an interesting ‘letter to the ediotr’ in the Australian newspaper two days ago from a David price in Victoria if I may paraphrase some of it..”If Susan Tsvangirai’s death was NOT an accident, then would someone please pull the plug on Zimbabwe and put an end to this tyrant’s [Mugabe’s] pathetic charade once and for all?I am sick of reading about him and his miserable deeds. Rhodesia was once my home and I will cherish the memory always but I cannot keep holding her hand forever. RIP.”David’s comment reminded me of a book I read back in the seventies by John Gordon Davis called ‘Hold my Hand I’m Dying”The book was set in Rhodesia back then and was startingly prothetic about the way Rhodesia was heading and is now.Rather an apt title for Zimbabwe now in the hands of Robert Mugabe.Read your Getaway blog very moving
