“Soon we will find out Who is the real revolutionary”
Zimbabwe, Bob Marley
It was one of Marley’s best lines – aimed not just at Zimbabwe, and the revolutionary leader Robert Mugabe, but at the whole world. In 1980, Zimbabwe became one of the last African countries to gain independence, but across Africa, independence had not always meant freedom. Many revolutionary leaders became dictators.
