Blood Sweat and Treason: My Story

by Henry Olonga
£18.99   hardback  Vision Sports Publishing Ltd (2010)

Blood Sweat and Treason: My Story by Henry Olonga Sports book meets real-life thriller in this sensational autobiography of Zimbabwe’s first ever-black cricketer. Blood, Sweat And Treason tells the story of Olonga's childhood against a backdrop of revolution, independence and a country that gradually spiralled out of control. He talks of his growing realisation that Mugabe headed up a murderous regime and how he sacrificed his comfortable position as an international sportsman to try to make a difference.
 
Now living in exile In England, branded a traitor in his homeland and stripped of his Zimbabwean citizenship, Olonga tells his extraordinary story in detail for the first time. Not just the famous protest but his early cricketing career in a rapidly changing Zimbabwe, the terrifying experience when he was car-jacked in Harare and his two year dispute with his Zimbabwe team-mates after a row about racism in the dressing room.
 
He reveals all about his lesser known singing career – he has topped the charts in Zimbabwe and recently recorded an album in the UK – his love for drama, art and photography, his career with the famous Lashings World XI cricket team and the faith that has kept him strong through all this.
