The Mercenaries Profiting From Sierra Leone's Civil War (2000)

Soldiers of Fortune (2000) - Mercenaries, allegedly working for the Sierra Leone government, have been charged with defeating RUF rebels - but blood diamonds might be their true goal. Subscribe to Journeyman here: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures Inside a helicopter mercenaries led by South African Neall Ellis fly fast and low over RUF rebel areas, shooting anything that moves. There is plenty of evidence suggesting that, while ostensibly working for the Sierra Leone government, they are in fact the military arm of the diamond mining companies.

Executive Outcomes  VS Savimbi/UNITA Rebels 1992/97

Angola bloody diamonds Executive Outcomes (EO) founded in 1989 by veterans of the South African Defense Force and registered in Britain in 1993. Executive Outcomes, the mercenary firm based in Pretoria, South Africa, and manned mostly by former members of the South African Defense Force, had proven to be a decisive factor in the outcome of some civil wars in Africa. Involved in forcing rebels to the negotiating table in Sierra Leone and more well-known for contributing to the Angolan government's success in forcing UNITA to accept the Lusaka Protocol in 1994, Executive Outcomes reportedly had a web of influence in Uganda, Botswana, Zambia, Ethiopia, Namibia, Lesotho and South Africa. EO is connected to a weblike structure of multinational holding entities, mining and oil companies, and security and air transportation groups which have purposefully been created to mask its operations 1992 Angola Recovery of oil equipment in Soyo held by UNITA rebels 1993 Angola Protection of diamond mine in Canfunfo, Lunda Norte Conduct of military training of the 16th Brigade of Forcas Armadas Angolanas (FAA) Conduct of general military training (terminated January 1997) Conduct of combative operations against UNITA 1994 Angola Conduct of air and logistical support for FAA

The Incredible London Interior Design
 
01:21
Back in 1930s London, few young millionaires cut as wide a swath as Sir Alfred Beit. The handsome MP was rapturously rich, thanks to South African diamond mines and Rhodesian railways, and also notably amorous, having been named co- respondent in a headline divorce suit. Little surprise that such a bon vivant would plump for lively living quarters in the city. Around 1937 Beit acquired an 1856 Italianate pleasure palace designed by James Knowles and then hired a quartet of ultrafashionable adepts—architects Lord Gerald Wellesley and Trenwith Wills and decorators Sibyl Colefax and John Fowler—to leaven its pomp. Soon Beit and his guests were dining in a flamboyant turquoise chamber drizzled with glistening silver leaf and thumbing books in a deliriously pretty library tricked out in Bavarian rococo style. Everywhere hung canvases by Goya, Vermeer, and other Old Masters, many of which now grace Russborough House, the Irish museum that was once Beit’s country estate. The baronet’s sparkling London digs had greatly dimmed by 2004, when a couple with young children took it in hand. Previous, less discriminating occupants had dulled the walls and pillars with hospital-whites, -beiges, and -greens; gold paint smeared the capitals in the 56-foot-long music room. “The place was fabulous but crumbling,” says designer Kevin Roberts of the Manhattan interiors studio Haynes-Roberts, which renovated the mansion with London’s Stanhope Gate Architecture. The assignment also came with significant strings attached: The house, part of the queen’s Crown Estate, is a Grade II* historic site, a relatively rare government designation that restricts alterations. In this case, no room could be remodeled and no finishes applied without approval. Subdividing rooms to construct baths and the like “is tolerated,” says Stanhope Gate principal Alireza Sagharchi (a favorite of the Prince of Wales), “as long as the work is reversible and can be removed without detriment to the original structure.” To make the new master bedroom, for example, his firm installed a bronze framework within a recessed second-floor terrace, and Haynes-Roberts outfitted it with upholstered walls and elegant millwork. “Either you come to a historic project and restore it or you create what might have been. We did something in between,” notes Roberts’s partner, architect Timothy Haynes. Still, like Beit’s own chic revamp, Roberts explains, “This job was about bringing past and present together. The clients wanted the house beautifully restored and furnished appropriately in an up-to-date manner. It was the most limiting thing we’ve ever done—and also the most creative.” The homeowners turned out to have as much appreciation for spirited revisions as Beit did—though it’s anybody’s guess what the baronet would have made of the gold-tiled basement swimming pool and monogrammed hammam. (Because these additions were underground, they did not run afoul of preservation rules.) In the entrance hall, the 1850s columns have been lacquered coal-black, recalling the famous Purbeck-marble ones at London’s 12th-century Temple Church. Their striking darkness gives a distinct coherence to the heroic space, relating the columns to the staircase’s iron balustrade and the floor’s Belgian-bluestone inserts

Cutaway of Mugabe SOUNDBITE (English) Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe: "The Liberation of a people is a great success of the time. It's the fact of transforming their status of that of being dependents, of being semi-slaves in their countries to their being now the makers of their own destiny." 9. Cutaway of reporters 10. SOUNDBITE (English) Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe: "Well at the end of my term, I will want as I said, to retire, but not from politics entirely, no no no I can't retire from that unless the Almighty says 'enough is enough'." 11. Mugabe and entourage leaving. STORYLINE: Zimbabwe's embattled and isolated leader said on Friday that his government will take a stake in privately operated mining enterprises in the mineral-rich southern African nation - but he does not intend to nationalise the industry as he has commercial farmland. In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press, the 81 year old, who has ruled Zimbabwe since a guerrilla war brought independence 25 years ago, said he plans to retire when his term expires in 2008 and live between the countryside and the city, farming and writing. He spoke in a 75-minute interview at the UN World Summit. He said he was pleased to have attended the Summit but it produced very little by way of expectations toward promised goals to fight poverty and eliminate trade tariffs. Mugabe blamed the United States and said the US should not be allowed to derail the agenda of dozens of other nations just because it is the strongest and wealthiest. Mugabe himself has been the subject of international condemnation. His government is accused of stealing elections, most recently in March, and of gross human rights abuses to suppress opposition. On a national level, Mugabe said his government would take a share in private mining enterprises because it wants Zimbabweans to benefit from their own natural resources. And he expects companies currently mining there, including the multi-national Anglo American, to understand that desire. Zimbabwe mines coal, chromium ore, asbestos, gold, nickel, copper, iron ore, vanadium, lithium, tin and platinum group metals as well as diamonds, emeralds and semiprecious stones. But he stressed there are no plans to nationalise the industry, as he had threatened to do when first was elected. Mugabe also said his government has no plans to seize white-owned businesses. The government already has seized thousands of white-owned commercial farms for redistribution to black Zimbabweans, leaving thousands of acres of once-cultivated land to run fallow.

South African History 1652 -1902 Culminating in the Anglo Boer War & Battle at Spion Kop
 
01:04:51
Online history video on the battle of Spion Kop, the bloodiest battle of the Anglo Boer War in South Africa 1899 - 1902, where Winston Churchill reported that up to seven bombs per minute were landing on top of the Spion Kop mountain with massive clouds of orange lydite and that the British soldiers in the trenches were being blown to atoms. Known as the 'Acre of Massacre', it remains the smallest piece of ground on which more men lost their lives in a single battle than any battle fought anywhere in the world… and it is here, witnessing what the human race was capable of, that the seeds of Mahatma Gandhi’s passive resistance took root. Leading up to this moment in history are some of South Africa’s major historical events going as far back as 1652, including: The arrival of the first settlers in South Africa and the origins of the Afrikaner people Conflicts in the history of South Africa: 1652 – 1902 Black/White and British/Boer conflicts in South Africa: 1652 – 1902. The British after burning many Boer farms set up concentration camps where disease was rampant which resulted in 29 000 Afrikaners and over 20 000 black people; men, woman and children dying in these camps.

Thomas Mapfumo & The Blacks Unlimited "Ngoma ye Kwedu"
 
10:49
Thomas Mapfumo & The Blacks Unlimited led a spectacular celebration of the first ten years of The Sanctuary for Independent Media in concert on April 2, 2016! www.mediasanctuary.org www.thomas-mapfumo.com Thomas Mapfumo has been the musical voice of protest in Zimbabwe and all of southern Africa for nearly half a century. Easily the most famous singer in his native country, Mapfumo lives in exile from the regime of Robert Mugabe, and his music is banned at home. But Mapfumo doesn't sing his protest only against one corrupt dictator. Mapfumo's gruff baritone voice is an instrument as lyrical or as fierce as he wants it to be. It's a voice that can't be doubted. His singing/chanting cries of protest are backed up by music that can only be heard as richly joyful. If these songs are to be sung in the streets of protest, then the singers will be dancing. The source of Mapfumo's music is tribal Africa, as any amount of listening to ethnographic field recordings would show. The complex layers of double and triple rhythm, expressed in melodic patterns based on the sound of the mbira (thumb piano), are ancestral, as is Mapfumo's cascade-of-words delivery. Recent CDs show a steadily growing international influence on Mapfumo, especially the influence of reggae, and more readiness to incorporate the "high life" jazz sounds of African pop music. There is a kind of 'disconnect' between the anguish often expressed in Mapfumo's words and the exuberance of his music, but that disconnect is ours, not his. Mapfumo is a man of joy in a world of sorrow. Thomas Tafirenyika Mukanya Mapfumo was born in Marondera, Zimbabwe in 1945. His early childhood moments, saw him tapping the knack and interest for traditional music and instruments (ngoma, hosho and mbira) from his grandparents who were avid musicians in the village. Unbeknown to him, that early-stage set-up underlined with innocence would describe his future music career and earn him global fame. By the age of ten he lived in Mbare with his parents who worked in the city. At the time, Mbare was a black ghetto township; also a hub of protest movements against the segregationist colonial regime. That anarchic neighborhood exposed young Thomas to some early brushes with police brutality against restless freedom protesters. It was also in Mbare that Mapfumo became hooked to the stereo, finding a favorite pastime as he listened to diverse international music from famous stars of the day. That concentrated limelight would eventually inspire him to plot for a music career at that tender age. Around 1973 Mapfumo joined his first group, the Hallelujah Chicken band in Mhangura, a small mining town. Initially, he had sang in English but quickly spotted a need to express himself in vernacular and please his local fans. That way, he would also spread consciousness and the call for freedom. He had a brief stint with the Hallelujah Chicken band before joining with others to form the Acid Band. Realizing a need for seriously pursuing his own Chimurenga music genre, he then founded the Blacks Unlimited around 1978. By then, Chimurenga music had eventually morphed into a symbol for the struggle against injustice as it assumed a distinct and threatening presence in war-torn Rhodesia. Through that music banner, he continued to taunt the colonial regime, denouncing poverty while advocating for freedom. Despite the colonial system reacting to the music with censure and repression, Mapfumo’s music irresistibly rocked the nation like a Hurricane as it remained unique, melodious, informative and equally gripping. When Zimbabwe became independent in 1980, Mukanya even shared the celebrations stage in Rufaro Stadium with the Jamaican reggae legend Bob Marley, opening more doors to international fame and recording opportunities in London. Despite his dedication to fighting colonial arbitrariness from the stage, Mapfumo even got busier in independent Zimbabwe as he would embark on a new Chimurenga theme. The looming corruption, grinding poverty, and the decaying rule of law blighted a promising Zimbabwe, saddening hopeful masses and inevitably pushing him to compose more lyrics as missiles for protest against his own government. To the surprise of many, the same music censorship characteristics of colonial Rhodesia also visited Mukanya upon his release of the Corruption album in independent Zimbabwe. With more pressing conditions, in 2000, he relocated to the USA and continued with his music. His full captivating biography has finally appeared in a book called "The Story of Thomas Mapfumo" by Banning Eyre, published in July 2015 courtesy of Chimurenga Music Company.

“Available on DVD through www.umbrellaent.com.au” Charting the life of Cecil John Rhodes (Martin Shaw, Judge John Deed, Inspector George Gently), this eight part miniseries explores the achievements of one of the most successful businessmen of the 19th century. An ardent believer in British Colonialism, Rhodes was the founder of the southern African territory of Rhodesia, now known as Zimbabwe. As a young and impressionable man Rhodes travelled to South Africa for the benefit of his health and developed interests in the rich diversity of the land - particularly the geological rewards of mining. He soon began making a profit from mining in the Kimberley diamond mines and formed his own company, De Beers Consolidated Mines in 1888. By 1890 he was Prime Minister of the Cape Colony and later in life founded the revered Rhodes Scholarship which enables foreign nationals to study at Oxford. A remarkable man of his time who took every opportunity to become one of the great mining magnates in history, Rhodes is an epic story of power and politics.

SUMMARY ======= Northern Rhodesia was a protectorate in south central Africa, formed in 1911 by amalgamating the two earlier protectorates of Barotziland-North-Western Rhodesia and North-Eastern Rhodesia. It was initially administered, as were the two earlier protectorates, by the British South Africa Company (BSAC), a chartered company on behalf of the British Government. From 1924 it was administered by the British Government as a protectorate under similar conditions to other British-administered protectorates, and the special provisions required when it was administered by BSAC were terminated. Although under the BSAC charter it had features of a charter colony, the BSAC's treaties with local rulers and British legislation gave it the status of a protectorate. The territory attracted a relatively small number of European settlers, but from the time these first secured political representation, they agitated for white minority rule, either as a separate entity or associated with Southern Rhodesia and possibly Nyasaland. The mineral wealth of Northern Rhodesia made full amalgamation attractive to Southern Rhodesian politicians, but the British Government preferred a looser association to include Nyasaland. This was intended to protect Africans in Northern Rhodesia and Nyasaland from discriminatory Southern Rhodesian laws. The Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland formed in 1953 was intensely unpopular among the vast African majority and its formation hastened calls for majority rule. As a result of this pressure, the country became independent in 1964 as Zambia.The geographical, as opposed to political, term "Rhodesia" referred to a region generally comprising the areas that are today Zambia and Zimbabwe. From 1964, it only referred to the former Southern Rhodesia.

Governments Steal From the World's people (fraud by G20 leaders &  the Chipping Norton Cabal)
 
55:47
This video by George Lees and Gordon Bowden is an hour long. the financial and economic crimes revealed are enormous and have the worlds' people in austerity and many 9in the developing world) in shallow graves. When genocides occur only local activists are accused of war crimes. We talk about the Bush Dynasty and Blair arming Iraq and private militias in Africa, the middle east and the Oman nukes made by Bredenkamp in South Africa and in Mugabe's/Smith's Rhodesia. We talk about sporting figureheads like Phil edmonds the International cricketer and the HALO trust's scams and the land mine trading that was one of the contributory factors in Princess Dianna's shameful persecution and death. Most importantly we talk about the trillion dollar financial frauds often dealing in virtual "non-existant products" in mining /oil /gas and how the illicit funds are raised in the Alternative investment Markets (notably the AIM in London, Torronto, Germany and China but all countries have these scams often before the transitional government imposed by the millitias is in place). Together they generate/control all rights to issue currency and stocks/shares only to their elite friends and to launder the proceeds into havens in Switzerland delaware Florida, Cuba, Mexico or offshore. We talk about corrupt companies like Lonmin (subsiduary of Lonrho) who kill their staff in the payround negotiations. We talk about the history of Tiny Rowlands, the Isle of Man NAZI internment camps and his release into the RSA/Rhodesia in 1942 to create a mining empire in Gold Diamands then to come back to Britain to be the unacceptable face of capitalism. We forgot to mention it but Lonrho's current chairman is Prince Charles' personal financial advisor. Al Fayed, Lord Patten and many mor infamous characters have served on the board and we discuss their boiler rooms in Finchley, Arlington Street (behind the Ritz) Bristol, Fetter Lane. The scams of false news from the BBC (which Patten runs) is shared by Ingenious Films LLP....with David/Posh Beckham, Steven Gerrard, the Neville brothers, Gary Linker and leading bankers like sir John Craven on the board (Deutsche Bank, JP Motgan-grenfell). They liase with the PM's friends in the chipping Norton set, illicit charitable scams (red nose day, WWF, British Legion, The Poppy fund and fail to read out the names of the war dead even in their local parishes. The Duke of westminster (Britains richest man) is a director at the Br Legion where they run a £7million insurance hedge fund to protect the profiteers from litigation by the impoverished masses. We profile the virtual oil and gas scams, erosion of our industrial productivity, public sector funding and jobs and reveal how the private security firms like G4S are now headed up by NATO commanders in chief (Lord Guthrie: a Blair life peer since 2001 and an NM Rothschild bank director like former chancellor Norman Lamont....who crashed our economy and our real estate pubbles before these teams got really violent and rich in the noughties! We talk about our relentless campaign to inform the people of the theft from the world's people and the endless brutalisation of innocent countries. WE finish by revealing that politicians like Alex Salmond SNP and Nigel farage UKIP (who are picked by the corrupted teams) have been informed in hundreds of Emails over 2-3 years of exactly who the fraudsters are and how G8 leaders run the world like the MAFIA (with NATO and the UN entirely at their disposal as profiteers). We profile the PONZI schemes in Westminster and roles for Dave Prentis on the court of the bank of England. We tell the audience about the scams against british students and the jobless youngsters and how this leads to a life in poverty and joblessness. All households are now feeling the pinch as they de-commission, armies, public police forces and have all institutions/countries on the globe in a massive pool of toxic debt that means all infrastructure projects, olympic events, world cups cost more than all of the previous events added together (as is the case with sovereign debt in every nation across the globe). Lastly we reveal how the world sees the ownership of other people asets as a well understood joke notably with oil and gas (where there is a real product) and how this is paid for by the lives and land of the locals. If you do not understand this or the characaters/ names involved then please loook them up in the index on this web site.....as we reveal in the summary the information is now going viral and is being shared with activists and anti-treason researchers GLOBALLY and the pin stripe brigade and the PM's friends in Chipping Norton, the SKY News Empire and the G8-G20 summits are in a really dangerous position as the masses who die for this realise they fund it all from their sacrifice and loyalty to tyrants and thieves.

The company received a Royal Charter in 1889 modelled on that of the British East India Company. Its first directors included the Duke of Abercorn, Rhodes himself and the South African financier Alfred Beit. Rhodes hoped BSAC would promote colonisation and economic exploitation across much of south-central Africa, as part of the "Scramble for Africa". However, his main focus was south of the Zambezi, in Mashonaland and the coastal areas to its east, from which he believed the Portuguese could be removed by payment or force, and in the Transvaal, which he hoped would return to British control.It has been suggested that Rhodes' ambition was to create a zone of British commercial and political influence from "Cape to Cairo", but this was far beyond the resources of any commercial company to achieve and would not have given investors the financial returns they expected. The BSAC was created in the expectation that the gold fields of Mashonaland would provide funds for the development of other areas of Central Africa, including the mineral wealth of Katanga. When the expected wealth of Mashonaland did not materialise and Katanga was acquired by the Congo Free State, the company had little money left for significant development after building railways, particularly in areas north of the Zambezi. BSAC regarded its lands north of the Zambezi as territory to be held as cheaply as possible for future, rather than immediate, exploitation.As part of administering Southern Rhodesia until 1923 and Northern Rhodesia until 1924, the BSAC formed what were originally paramilitary forces, but which later included more normal police functions. In addition to the administration of Southern and Northern Rhodesia, the BSAC claimed extensive landholdings and mineral rights in both the Rhodesias and, although its land claims in Southern Rhodesia were nullified in 1918, its land rights in Northern Rhodesia and its mineral rights in Southern Rhodesia had to be bought out in 1924 and 1933 respectively, and its mineral rights in Northern Rhodesia lasted until 1964. The BSAC also created the Rhodesian railway system and owned the railways there until 1947.

22 -- Stayed a few days in the life of he Bushmen in the Kalahari Desert

Apartheid in South Africa , you had to be careful who you associated with, it was the Law. South African Mines are Deep, Dark, Hot and Dangerous with a possibility to be exposed to radioactive uranium and the contamination of RADON GAS. I soon had enough of working underground on the gold mines of South Africa when a fellow sampler told me of his health issues that was the result of working underground and another sampler told me that he was a mark man underground because of the way he treated some african workers so with all the crazy conditions that I had to endure as well as the "Bumps" (Rock-fall) "Cave in" call it what ever you want that is why I always had one or two Mozambique's walking infront of me and one behind me and still I didn't feel safe so I asked to be transferred to surface so that was my experience of working underground in a South African Gold Mine. The big boss himself Mr Prentice the boss of mining operations decided to get into the act of showing me how melting gold is done and since his parents came from Dublin he never stopped me from roaming around the mine as much as I wanted and no one said anything to me other then a co-worker (Afrikaner) ask me if I was a communist all because he saw me being friendly with the African mine workers. I was really flabbergasted when I came across the Birchenough Bridge that I immediately thought of the Sydney Harbour Bridge in the middle of the bush of Southern Africa which is a replica of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The Australians couldn't have been more helpfull when Peter and I arrived at Darwin Airport from Dili East Timor. Our clothes were totally in shreds and my shoes were in pieces and I tried my best to look some what presentable for the immigration people and they told me welcome to Australia with a smile on their face and stamped my passport without any fanfare. I was so happy after what I went through (Survived a stoning on Timor) on those Indonesian islands along with Peter who traveled with me and immediately the Australians fixed me up with a job in "Rum Jungle" Uranium Mines south of Darwin When I worked on the uranium mine in the Northern Territory my block (housing) had to be the most rambunctious bunch of guys led by Chris the English man who could really sing and who was a great guy. All it would take was just a few beers and a singing session would start just about every other night and on the week ends the party would end when we would run out of beer. Had to be careful with these Ayoreo girls hanging around the door of our adobe because the Ayoreo custom is that the women choose there partner. Jaime warned me about the women and said I might end up with a lance through my back from one of the young hunters that return back to camp from three or four days or more hunting in the jungle. Apartheid in South Africa 1970: A lot of people on both sides of the street in down town Johannesburg waiting for a bus to take them home to their families on Christmas Eve late afternoon. The problem was there was only one bus and probably that wasn't going anywhere while the Afrikaans was at home with his family not thinking of the poor African because in the Afrikaans mind the African doesn't even exist. Those African weren't going anywhere because all of the bus drivers are white what I have seen so you come to your own conclusions. Dredged for diamonds of the Skeleton Coast (Namir Desert) in Namibia. The policy was when you were flown by company plane from Cape Town to the diamond sight you brought what you want but when your two weeks tour of work was up you return to Cape Town for a week with only the clothes and shoes you wore which meant no camera. Yelapa was a popular getaway for celebrities at one time and because I was a gringo the local authorities believe that all gringo's have the same habit and how frustrated and disappointed they become when they fail to find anything on me. The Tonga people lived back then as you can see in a terrible state with a high percent of the children dying of many diseases as well as some of the adult population.They were the forgotten people by the Rhodesia regime(out of sight out of mind) probably the reason they were permitted to smoke dagga(dope)was to isolate them and to be forgotten. Published on Sep 16, 2012Many of the Tonga insisted that I smoke from one of there Dagga water pipes but infact I was more concerned about the hygiene then getting some effects from smoking the Dagga so not to displease them I went through the motion only. More then 60 people children and adults die each year in my opinion from Malaria and not from smoking Dagga that the authorities claim.

The conflict pitted three forces against one another: the Rhodesian government, led by Ian Smith (later the Zimbabwe-Rhodesian government of Bishop Abel Muzorewa); the Zimbabwe African National Liberation Army, the military wing of Robert Mugabe's Zimbabwe African National Union; and the Zimbabwe People's Revolutionary Army of Joshua Nkomo's Zimbabwe African People's Union. The war and its subsequent Internal Settlement, signed in 1978 by Smith and Muzorewa, led to the implementation of universal suffrage in June 1979 and the end of white minority rule in Rhodesia, which was renamed Zimbabwe Rhodesia under a black majority government. However, this new order failed to win international recognition and the war continued. Neither side achieved a military victory and a compromise was later reached.Negotiations between the government of Zimbabwe-Rhodesia, the UK Government and Mugabe and Nkomo's united "Patriotic Front" took place at Lancaster House, London in December 1979, and the Lancaster House Agreement was signed. The country returned temporarily to British control and new elections were held under British and Commonwealth supervision in March 1980. ZANU won the election and Mugabe became the first Prime Minister of Zimbabwe on 18 April 1980, when the country achieved internationally recognised independence.

Empowered by its charter to acquire, govern and develop the area north of the Transvaal in southern Africa, the Company, headed by Cecil Rhodes, raised its own armed forces and carved out a huge bloc of territory through treaties, concessions and occasional military action, most prominently overcoming the Matabele army in the First and Second Matabele Wars of the 1890s. By the turn of the century, Rhodes's Company held a vast, land-locked country, bisected by the Zambezi river. It officially named this land Rhodesia in 1895, and ran it until the early 1920s. The area south of the Zambezi became Southern Rhodesia, while that to the north became North-Western and North-Eastern Rhodesia, which were joined in 1911 to form Northern Rhodesia. Within Northern Rhodesia, there was a separate Kingdom called Barotseland which later became a British protectorate alongside other territories under the British sphere of influence. Each territory was administered separately, with an administrator heading each territorial legislature. In Southern Rhodesia, which attracted the most white immigrants and developed fastest, a legislative council was established in 1898. This comprised a blend of Company-nominated officials and elected members, with the numbers of each fluctuating over time. Partially motivated by Rhodes's dream of a Cape to Cairo Railway, railway and telegraph lines were laid across previously barren Rhodesia with great speed, linking South Africa to the Belgian Congo's southern Katanga province by 1910. The British South Africa Police, responsible for law enforcement in Southern Rhodesia, was established in 1896. A number of police forces north of the river amalgamated to form the Northern Rhodesia Police in 1911. Northern and Southern Rhodesians fought alongside the British in the Second Boer War and the First World War; about 40% of Southern Rhodesian white men fought in the latter, mostly on the Western Front in Europe. Black soldiers served in East Africa with the Rhodesia Native Regiment. As the number of elected members in the Legislative Council rose, power in Southern Rhodesia gradually transferred from complete Company rule to effective self-government by the growing number of white settlers. In a 1922 referendum, Southern Rhodesians chose responsible government within the British Empire over incorporation in ...

Africa 2010 - The Future of Zimbabwe
 
01:24:29
http://www.weforum.org/ 06.05.2010 This session brings together the three leaders of the Government of National Unity at a critical moment in Zimbabwes history. With progress being made in reconciling historic differences, Zimbabwe's economy has shown signs of recovery largely driven by the introduction of dollarization in January 2009, which helped to stabilize inflation and increase investment. (However, concerns remain as to the cohesion of the current government. The recent indigenization bill passed in parliament has caused concern for both international and local businesses.) What is the future of Zimbabwe under the current Government of National Unity, and how are investors and businesses adjusting their operational strategies to recent developments? Robert G. Mugabe Arthur G. Mutambara Morgan Tsvangirai Moderated by Klaus Schwab Julie Gichuru

Thomas Mapfumo & The Blacks Unlimited "Danger Zone"
 
07:26
Thomas Mapfumo & The Blacks Unlimited led a spectacular celebration of the first ten years of The Sanctuary for Independent Media in concert on April 2, 2016! www.mediasanctuary.org www.thomas-mapfumo.com Thomas Mapfumo has been the musical voice of protest in Zimbabwe and all of southern Africa for nearly half a century. Easily the most famous singer in his native country, Mapfumo lives in exile from the regime of Robert Mugabe, and his music is banned at home. But Mapfumo doesn't sing his protest only against one corrupt dictator. Mapfumo's gruff baritone voice is an instrument as lyrical or as fierce as he wants it to be. It's a voice that can't be doubted. His singing/chanting cries of protest are backed up by music that can only be heard as richly joyful. If these songs are to be sung in the streets of protest, then the singers will be dancing. The source of Mapfumo's music is tribal Africa, as any amount of listening to ethnographic field recordings would show. The complex layers of double and triple rhythm, expressed in melodic patterns based on the sound of the mbira (thumb piano), are ancestral, as is Mapfumo's cascade-of-words delivery. Recent CDs show a steadily growing international influence on Mapfumo, especially the influence of reggae, and more readiness to incorporate the "high life" jazz sounds of African pop music. There is a kind of 'disconnect' between the anguish often expressed in Mapfumo's words and the exuberance of his music, but that disconnect is ours, not his. Mapfumo is a man of joy in a world of sorrow. Thomas Tafirenyika Mukanya Mapfumo was born in Marondera, Zimbabwe in 1945. His early childhood moments, saw him tapping the knack and interest for traditional music and instruments (ngoma, hosho and mbira) from his grandparents who were avid musicians in the village. Unbeknown to him, that early-stage set-up underlined with innocence would describe his future music career and earn him global fame. By the age of ten he lived in Mbare with his parents who worked in the city. At the time, Mbare was a black ghetto township; also a hub of protest movements against the segregationist colonial regime. That anarchic neighborhood exposed young Thomas to some early brushes with police brutality against restless freedom protesters. It was also in Mbare that Mapfumo became hooked to the stereo, finding a favorite pastime as he listened to diverse international music from famous stars of the day. That concentrated limelight would eventually inspire him to plot for a music career at that tender age. Around 1973 Mapfumo joined his first group, the Hallelujah Chicken band in Mhangura, a small mining town. Initially, he had sang in English but quickly spotted a need to express himself in vernacular and please his local fans. That way, he would also spread consciousness and the call for freedom. He had a brief stint with the Hallelujah Chicken band before joining with others to form the Acid Band. Realizing a need for seriously pursuing his own Chimurenga music genre, he then founded the Blacks Unlimited around 1978. By then, Chimurenga music had eventually morphed into a symbol for the struggle against injustice as it assumed a distinct and threatening presence in war-torn Rhodesia. Through that music banner, he continued to taunt the colonial regime, denouncing poverty while advocating for freedom. Despite the colonial system reacting to the music with censure and repression, Mapfumo’s music irresistibly rocked the nation like a Hurricane as it remained unique, melodious, informative and equally gripping. When Zimbabwe became independent in 1980, Mukanya even shared the celebrations stage in Rufaro Stadium with the Jamaican reggae legend Bob Marley, opening more doors to international fame and recording opportunities in London. Despite his dedication to fighting colonial arbitrariness from the stage, Mapfumo even got busier in independent Zimbabwe as he would embark on a new Chimurenga theme. The looming corruption, grinding poverty, and the decaying rule of law blighted a promising Zimbabwe, saddening hopeful masses and inevitably pushing him to compose more lyrics as missiles for protest against his own government. To the surprise of many, the same music censorship characteristics of colonial Rhodesia also visited Mukanya upon his release of the Corruption album in independent Zimbabwe. With more pressing conditions, in 2000, he relocated to the USA and continued with his music. His full captivating biography has finally appeared in a book called "The Story of Thomas Mapfumo" by Banning Eyre, published in July 2015 courtesy of Chimurenga Music Company.

Rhodesia
 
01:03:50
Rhodesia (/roʊˈdiːʒə/, rə-DEE-zhə), officially the Republic of Rhodesia from 1970 to 1979, was an unrecognised state located in southern Africa during the Cold War. From 1965 to 1979, it comprised the region now known as Zimbabwe. The country, with its capital in Salisbury, was considered a de facto successor state to the former British colony of Southern Rhodesia (which had achieved responsible government in 1923). During an effort to delay an immediate transition to black majority rule, Rhodesia's predominantly white government issued its own Unilateral Declaration of Independence (UDI) from the United Kingdom on 11 November 1965. The UDI administration initially sought recognition as an autonomous realm within the Commonwealth of Nations, but reconstituted itself as a republic in 1970. This video is targeted to blind users.

Land reform in Zimbabwe
 
24:30
Land reform in Zimbabwe officially began in 1979 with the signing of the Lancaster House Agreement, an effort to more equitably distribute land between black subsistence farmers and white Zimbabweans of European ancestry, who had traditionally enjoyed superior political and economic status. The government's land distribution is perhaps the most crucial and most bitterly contested political issue surrounding Zimbabwe. It can be divided into two periods: from 1979 to 2000, where a principle of willing buyer, willing seller was applied with economic help from Great Britain and secondly, beginning in 2000, the fast-track land reform program. Mugabe's targets were intended to alter the ethnic balance of land ownership. This video is targeted to blind users.

The capital city is Lusaka, in the south-central part of Zambia. The population is concentrated mainly around Lusaka in the south and the Copperbelt Province to the northwest, the core economic hubs of the country. Originally inhabited by Khoisan peoples, the region was affected by the Bantu expansion of the thirteenth century. After visits by European explorers in the eighteenth century, the region became the British protectorates of Barotziland-North-Western Rhodesia and North-Eastern Rhodesia towards the end of the nineteenth century. These were merged in 1911 to form Northern Rhodesia. For most of the colonial period, Zambia was governed by an administration appointed from London with the advice of the British South Africa Company. On 24 October 1964, Zambia became independent of the United Kingdom and prime minister Kenneth Kaunda became the inaugural president. Kaunda's socialist United National Independence Party (UNIP) maintained power from 1964 until 1991. Kaunda played a key role in regional diplomacy, cooperating closely with the United States in search of solutions to conflicts in Rhodesia (Zimbabwe), Angola, and Namibia. From 1972 to 1991 Zambia was a one-party state with the UNIP as the sole legal political party under the motto "One Zambia, One Nation". Kaunda was succeeded by Frederick Chiluba of the social-democratic Movement for Multi-Party Democracy in 1991, beginning a period of social-economic growth and government decentralisation. Levy Mwanawasa, Chiluba's chosen successor, presided over Zambia from January 2002 until his death in August 2008, and is credited with campaigns to reduce corruption and increase the standard of living. After Mwanawasa's death, Rupiah Banda presided as Acting President before being elected President in 2008. Holding office for only three years, Banda stepped down after his defeat in the 2011 elections by Patriotic Front party leader Michael Sata. Sata died on 28 October 2014, the second Zambian president to die in office. Guy Scott served briefly as interim president until new elections were held on 20 January 2015, in which Edgar Lungu was elected as the sixth President. In 2010, the World Bank named Zambia one of the world's fastest economically reformed countries. The Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) is headquartered in Lusaka.

German East Africa
 
11:03
German East Africa (German: Deutsch-Ostafrika) was a German colony in the African Great Lakes region, which included what are now Burundi, Rwanda, and the mainland part of present Tanzania (formerly known as Tanganyika). Its area was 994,996 km2 (384,170 sq mi), nearly three times the area of present-day Germany. The colony was organized when the German military was called upon to put down a revolt against the activities of a colonial company during the late 1880s. It ended with Imperial Germany's defeat in World War I. Afterwards, the territory was divided between Britain and Belgium and reorganized as a mandate of the League of Nations.
