    Good write up. Another myth this writer would like to see dispelled is the myth that the Rhodesian conflict was a ‘civil war.’ Nothing could be further from the truth, yet, as good as the book was, the book by Mike Borlace, Spider Zero Seven, on the back cover it refers to the war as a ‘civil war’ and I have noticed over the years many books written on Rhodesia by Rhodesians refers to it as a ‘civil war.’ This does not help when we are trying to get the message out to a brainwashed world that blacks and whites fought together side by side against a ruthless communist onslaught and the blacks who fought on the Rhodesian side were all volunteers and that the Rhodesian security forces consisted of 70% black volunteers.

      Well stated. We plan to do a future article proving it was NOT a civil war. As we have pointed out in other articles, the likes of Mugabe were used as proxies for an international hot-war.

    A good write up, giving a bare and factual view point from the Rhodesian perspective. I would challenge future writers to pen down a holistic view point seeing what the Matabeles also have to say in all of this.

    There are certain factors there which are questionable based on simple facts such as the Karangas,Manyikas, Ndawus all enjoyed diplomatic and cultural ties with Mthwakazi nation being protected from invaders from other regions.

    This myth of Matabele viciously attacking shona tribes……will always be a myth

    I also question the supposedly equal society pre 1980. Yes, 70% of the armed forces were black in an integrated setting but we black civilians only started living in Greendale and Vainona post 1980.

      ‘only started living in Greendale…post 1980’

      I would question why some blacks feel such a compelling need to live where whites congregate in the first place. Are they not content to live among their own kind? What do they find so unsatisfactory with their own people? This would be more interesting to study than – quote: ‘a holistic view point seeing what the Matabeles also have to say in all this’. Matabeles (and Shonas) have their own forums and media to discuss their attitudes to the white race and they do, especially on twitter.

      This website is clearly for the ethnic-European Rhodesian narrative to have a voice at long last to counter the endless, mindless propaganda lies infested upon the world about them over the last 70 years by the marxist loving world media and greedy psychopath Robert Mugabe.

      Elsewhere in the world each prefer to live among their own kind. The Indians like to live amongst Indians, the Chinese amongst Chinese etc.

      In fact in an interview with BBC years ago with Michael Parkinson who was then pushing the new ‘multicultural’ agenda, Mohamed Ali (the black world champion boxer Cassius Clay) called Parkinson a traitor to his own white race. Ali said he himself preferred to live amongst his own kind “They’re all birds, but Blue birds live with Blue birds, Eagles with Eagles, Sparrows with Sparrows. Its nature.

      Clearly not the case with many of the black Africans because they are also leaving their own ‘free’ self-ruled black majority states despite their ‘liberty’ and ‘equality’ and ‘freedom’ and flooding into Europe and Britain and every other white majority nation even though those black nations are POST-colonial nations who were gifted for free a civilized and superior modern and well functioning infrastructure not known by the tribes people prior.

      Why the eternal discontent with their own black majority rule nations? Why are they not content to live amongst their own people, and create their own advanced civilizations? THIS would be worthy of enquiry but only black Africans can answer that and should be the ones to write about that as did a successful Nigerian living in America, Okonkwo Akachukwu, in American Renaissance, December 14, 2018:

      “A Nigerian’s View of Race”

      https://www.amren.com/features/2018/12/a-nigerians-view-of-race/

      A few of the points he makes:

      “virtually all Nigerians and Africans believe that Africa’s poverty and instability are due to European exploitation. If it weren’t for ndi onyi o cha (Igbo for “those white skins”)! I have never understood this line of reasoning. If Africa was worth plundering, why are Africans unable to plunder Africa’s resources to build their own advanced civilizations?

      This African tendency to blame others for our own shortcomings is a perfectly natural, if unhealthy, coping mechanism. One cannot live year in year out in squalor, social stagnation, and rampant crime and simply accept that this is perhaps the best level at which one’s people can operate. It is far easier and all too human to push the blame elsewhere.

      Another purpose for the demonization of whites by Africans is to serve as a moral justification for plundering and exploiting whites. I need not outline the very many tactics of plunder.

      Colonization is supposed to have been a terrible thing for Africa, but I seriously doubt any Nigerian is glad that the British are gone…..

      “Almost every institution or legacy left behind by the British has either deteriorated past the point of utility and recognition or has simply ceased to exist.

      For instance, King’s College London is, through today, a respected institution.

      King’s College Lagos (the equivalent of a high school in America), established in 1909, is the school I attended. It is a disaster. I spent all six years in the packed, overcrowded hostels where we were on jovial terms with rats. It was not unusual to come back after classes only to find human excrement on the hostel floors because the shared toilets were too filthy even to pass by, much less use. It would have taken an intrepid plumber to brave the exotic mountains of filth merely to reach the toilets, much less repair them. The school soccer field become the unofficial toilet.

      When a certain leader of a certain country refers to other countries, such as Nigeria, as s**tholes, that is not the least bit racist. It is, unfortunately, merely descriptive.

      The fences at the school were routinely broken so that students could bring prostitutes onto the premises for a short session. It was not at all uncommon for a young student to be attending to the call of nature at night in the overgrown grass while another would be engaging a local woman only a few yards away.

      Boarding students, particularly the more vulnerable junior students, often went without food or drinking water. These basic necessities should have been covered by our school fees but the funds were almost always misappropriated by school staff. Underfeeding was so widespread that my friends and I might go for two weeks without defecating. Drinking water was sometimes so scarce that we might padlock a pail of water in a locker, only to find the lock broken by morning.

      Sexual molestation of the younger students was a matter of course. The only way to avoid that was to avoid sleeping in hostels. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of sleeping on the rooftops of classroom buildings to avoid predation……

      King’s College is considered an elite institution in Nigeria.

      If any major British government official were to ever ask me if my people are glad the British are gone, my response would be simple. “No, we are not. Come back. Please.”

    A most interesting article with plenty of comparisons to debunk most of the myths referred to. In South Africa some 26 years after the ANC took over the governing of the country whenever anything goes wrong or the politicians make the same speeches about the ‘downtrodden masses’ – it is blamed on apartheid!! Another myth you will no doubt hopefully write about! Thank you for the interesting article!

    The Shona and Matabele did not “decimate” the Bushmen. Decimate is to kill one in 10. The San were annihilated.

    Big problem for whites was not learning local languages. How can your family live 200 years on another continent and know so little about the majority around you?

    And, silly kinds of discrimination. Blacks couldn’t be commissioned in the army or air force until 1977 and had a whole other rank structure in the police.

    They couldn’t use the toilet in Greatermans or Kingstons, even when shopping there.

    These were not smart moves.

    No question, Mugabe et al was not the answer. But neither was the futility of 320,000 whites trying to rule over six million blacks and not even able to speak Shona or isiNdebele.

    Sadly, once Mozambique fell, it was all over.

    • WakeyWakey says:

      So, ‘to pee or not to pee’ etc that was the answer? Try telling that to the World Bankers who had already planned the fall of Rhodesia and South Africa before 1940 ie before WWII began. Sometimes it only makes sense when you look at the Big Picture Plan.

  5. Hi I quite like reading through an article that will make men and women think. Also, thanks for allowing me to comment! gracias
