TALK: In Zimbabwe, people would be only too happy to enjoy our liberties. President Mugabe, aged 93, intends to get himself re-elected as president next year. Come and hear about the effects of his regime on the people of Zimbabwe and on the rule of law in Southern Africa. White Zimbabwean, Ben Freeth, one time adventurer, with his father-in-law, Mike Campbell, took on the Mugabe regime in the courts and won. But they were beaten up by Mugabe’s bullies – and Ben’s house was burnt down. They were forced to leave their farm. No redress. Ben will be with us to speak about his experiences and the way ahead. Barcombe Village Hall, Friday June 23, 7.30pm. Contact Harriet Lear on 400321 or for more information.
