    "The Last Stand": Mugabe and the White African

    Robert Mugabe’s 'land redistribution’ policy, under which Zimbabwe’s white-owned farms have been brutally plundered, has ruined thousands of lives and turned once-productive areas into wastelands. A new documentary tells the moving story of one family, their bodies beaten, their home torched, who refuse to roll over
    ------
    As the records show, the land taken from some 4,000 productive white Zimbabwean farmers, often with violent force, has been handed almost exclusively to Mugabe’s cronies – pliable judges, air vice-marshals, provincial administrators, girlfriends of ministers and assorted relations such as Chamada. When the white farmer Ben Freeth asks how someone like the expensively dressed Chamada can describe himself as a member of the poor black majority, 'when every time you come here you arrive in a brand-new car’, the raging scion spits out, 'I will sleep here until you are out. We want to deal with friendlier people – the Chinamen, the Indians. We don’t want anything to do with you [white] people

    All around are the black farm workers who clearly dread the moment Chamada and his ilk prise the farm from its white owners. For them this supposed liberation will be the beginning of their descent into joblessness, homelessness and hunger, a journey taken by the majority of Mugabe’s subjects over the past 10 years. As the film shows, the farms plundered by Mugabe’s inner circle, which once formed the backbone of a thriving economy, are now by and large unmaintained, overgrown wastelands. (Mugabe first set his ragtag army of militants on to the white farmers in 2000 after he lost a referendum called to entrench his political power. Since then violent intimidation and seizures in the name of land distribution have derailed the commercial agricultural sector.)

    This exchange takes place a matter of weeks before Freeth, his father-in-law and mother-in-law are abducted, tortured and beaten by a gang of Chamada’s, and thus Mugabe’s, storm troopers. Freeth’s father-in-law is Mike Campbell, 75, the White African of the film’s title, and he is battered so severely that he is unable to attend the final hearing of the international human rights court in Nam**ibia, which is to deliver its verdict on the legality of Mugabe’s land invasions. Freeth is just about able to attend that hearing, but in a wheelchair and with his head swathed in bandages.
