Beyond Tears: Zimbabwe's Tragedy

by Catherine Buckle
£12.99   paperback  Johnathan Ball Publishers (2003)

Beyond Tears: Zimbabwe Beyond Tears: Zimbabwe's Tragedy is a searing indictment of the Zimbabwe Government's desperate land grab, the destruction of the country's agricultural sector, and the suffering of those who worked and lived on those farms. It is, indeed, a horrifying story of how a country is being destroyed by a government determined to retain power at all costs.
 
In Beyond Tears, Cathy Buckle talks to the people involved in the weekend horror of the murder of a farmer and the abduction of five other farmers from the apparent safety of the Murehwa police stattion. She also interviews two women who were viciously raped and afterwards found it difficult to find anyone who would help them. Then, she goes back to her once-thriving farm and finds that it has been turned into a squatter camp. Beyond Tears is a sequal to African Tears, the moving account of how she and her husband turned a 1,000-acre rocky piece of land near Marondera into a productive farm, only to lose it to a group of 'war veterans' ten years later.
