Cathy Buckle - Letters From Zimbabwe
Cathy Buckle and her well known blog, Letters from Zimbabwe, featuring eye witness accounts of daily life in Zimbabwe, has been running since February 2000. It is sent to subscribers around the world and is regularly featured by a number of international print and broadcast media outlets.
Cathy writes not as an academic, an expert or an historian, but as an ordinary woman living in a small town in Zimbabwe. Her raw and often painful stories give a glimpse of hope in a country for so long in a state of despair.
Cathy’s Letters from Zimbabwe, covering the last seventeen years of Robert Mugabe’s rule, are collated into four books: ‘Can you hear the drums’ (2000-2004); ‘Millions, billions, trillions’ (2005-2009); ‘When winners are losers’ (2009-2013); and ‘Finding our voices’ (2013-2017).
These and other books about life in Zimbabwe, including the bestselling ‘African Tears’ (serialized by the UK Sunday Times, Rapport newspaper and Femina magazine in South Africa) are all available on this website.
