BPBE: 12/10/1923 - 27/07/1997 - Gone, but never forgotten
Among other things, the opinions of a former member of the Zimbabwe Republic Police force. My take on the world in general and one thing in particular - a commentary on the current situation in Zimbabwe. I am not a journalist, nor a political activist, but I am a man with a conscience. Hence, this page is my civic responsibility. The more people that hear about the devastating rule in Zimbabwe and the problems therein, the better!

Born in the Kentish town of Royal Tunbridge Wells way back in February 1963, I am the fourth of five children. My late father was South African and my mother is from Scotland. The family moved to what was then Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) in November 1964. I joined the Zimbabwe Republic Police force in February 1981 straight after leaving school, specialising in prosecutions, based in Essexvale (now Esigodini), Plumtree and Gwanda. As with many policemen (in Africa), once I left the service in 1985, I went into sales and then moved into management. I was based in various places within Zimbabwe, including Chiredzi in the Lowveld, Mutare in the Eastern Highlands, and, of course, Harare. A brief (but tiring) employment with an international trucking company saw me travelling the length and breadth (and depth) of Southern Africa which I found most enlightening. My wife and I returned to England in December 1998. Following an accident at work in August 2000, I was left disabled. I am now studying for a BA (Hons) in Criminology and Criminal Justice with the University of Essex Online - and loving it!
