Dickson : a biography of Netsha Sibanda : starting businesses in Zambia & aiding the struggle for Zimbabwe

Dickson Netsha Sibanda's life encompasses a great number of the key events of the past half century in Zimbabwe and the central African region as a whole. This biography is as much a social, economic and political history as much a history of one man. It is a story about movement and the cultural changes it brought, encompassing the pre-colonial arrival of Sibanda's family in what would become Matabeleland, the upheavals of the arrival of the Ndebele and then colonialisation by the British South Africa Company. Sibanda's life is also a political story encompassing the rural spread of nationalism and armed struggle in exile after fleeing Rhodesia for Zambia after being caught for selling ZAPU cards as well as grain from the back of his truck. Above all the Sibanda's story is one of an irrepressible entrepreneur with a powerful desire for education and unable to let opportunity pass him by.
