In celebrating 39 years of Independence with the people of Zimbabwe, we take a flash-back to 18 April 1980 - When the countdown of liberation began.
ZIMBABWE INDEPENDENCE AT LAST
"Background to Story: After seven years of war and fifteen years of illegal White rule, Zimbabwe finally achieved independence this month. More than one hundred nations attended the independence ceremony which marked the end of nearly ninety years of British rule in Rhodesia. For the White settlers, independence marks the end of an era. For the Blacks and the new government of Robert Mugabe, it is a challenge of immense proportions." - AP Archive.
