Description

In March 1886, the Ndebele people of what was then called Rhodesia rose in armed rebellion against European settlers such as Cecil Rhodes who had taken over much of the land to mine gold and other minerals. The first rebellion ended in defeat and it took another 84 years and a guerrilla war in the 1970s before independence was gained. This video traces that struggle and portrays the lives of Robert Mugabe, Joshua Nkomo, Ian Smith and others.
