Michael Campbell is one of the few hundred white farmers left in Zimbabwe since President Robert Mugabe began his violent ‘Land Reform’ program in 2000.
In 2008 Mike took the unprecedented step
of challenging President Robert Mugabe in an International Court, accusing Robert Mugabe and his government of racial discrimination and violations of basic human rights.
What follows is an intimate, moving and often terrifying account of one man and his family’s
extraordinary courage in the face of overwhelming injustice and brutality.
Set against the tumultuous 2008 Presidential elections, Mugabe and the White African follows Mike and son-in-law Ben Freeth’s harrowing attempt to save their farm and with it the homes and livelihoods of 500 farm workers and their families.
