Since the 11th century, present-day Zimbabwe has been the site of several organised states and kingdoms as well as a major route for migration and trade. The British South Africa Company of Cecil Rhodes first demarcated the present territory during the 1890s; it became the self-governing British colony of Southern Rhodesia in 1923.
Republic of Zimbabwe Thirty Seventh Independence Day 18 April 2017 Greetings
“Well, no one gives aid to Zimbabwe through the Mugabe government.”
“When I first worked in Zimbabwe, I was a complete novice. I was doing a study, and I continued to learn more and more through the years. And where I have learned most is in the village, from the communities.”- Happy 37th Independence Day Zimbabwe..
“I went to Zimbabwe. I know how white people feel in America now; relaxed! Cause when I heard the police car I knew they weren’t coming after me!!”- Happy 37th Independence Day Zimbabwe..
“I grew up on the coast of England in the ’70s. My dad is white from Cornwall, and my mom is black from Zimbabwe. Even the idea of us as a family was challenging to most people.”- Happy 37th Independence Day Zimbabwe..
“The Commonwealth is a mere club, but it has become like an ‘Animal Farm’ where some members are more equal than others. How can Blair claim to regulate and direct events and still say all of us are equals?”- Happy 37th Independence Day Zimbabwe..
“The people of Zimbabwe have a responsibility to ensure that the government that they elected behaves properly.” – Happy 37th Independence Day Zimbabwe..
“I grew up in Zimbabwe in Southern Africa, and I moved to London when I was 17. And I started commuting and, actually, to go to college. And I used to really enjoy that part of my journey where the – it was actually a Tube train, but it was over ground, and it went right past the backs of people’s houses, and I could actually see right in.” – Happy 37th Independence Day Zimbabwe..
“In 1993, when I landed in Zimbabwe, there were just 10 psychiatrists in that country of 10 million people. Nine of the 10 were foreigners who spoke no regional language.” – Happy 37th Independence Day Zimbabwe..
“South Africans will kick down a statue of a dead white man but won’t even attempt to slap a live one. Yet they can stone to death a black man simply because he’s a foreigner.” – Happy 37th Independence Day Zimbabwe..
“I was brought up in Zimbabwe, and there were seven of us in my family, so it was difficult to read aloud to us all. There weren’t that many picture books around in the Fifties in Zimbabwe. My favourite was Heinrich Hoffmann’s Struwwelpeter, which was really frightening.” – Happy 37th Independence Day Zimbabwe..
“Dont fight even over girlfriends. The country is full of beautiful women. If you cant get one, come to Mugabe for assistance.” – Happy 37th Independence Day Zimbabwe..
“Pictures are very important. I remember at home we had illustrated editions of Rudyard Kipling’s ‘Just So Stories’ and ‘The Jungle Book,’ which were read to me. Living in Zimbabwe made it very real, especially the ‘Just So Stories’ with the ‘great grey-green greasy Limpopo.” – Happy 37th Independence Day Zimbabwe..
