Sithole was true founder says widow’s book

LONDON - A veteran of Zimbabwe's 1970s war of liberation now living in the United States has published a book that says the late Reverend Ndabaningi Sithole, her late husband, was the true founder of the struggle, not President Robert Mugabe.
Author Vesta Sithole says Ndabaningi Sithole created t

he Zimbabwe African National Union party, but lost control of it to Mugabe in the mid-1970s and was eventually cut out of decision-making through 1980 when Zimbabwe gained independence.
Entitled My Life With An Unsung Hero, the book is autobiographical in approach – the author joined the liberation struggle at 19 and spent years in exile – but also provides many new details on the life and career of Ndabaningi Sithole, who died in 2000.
Vesta Sithole told reporter Carole Gombakomba of VOA’s Studio 7 for Zimbabwe that she wanted to set the record straight and dispel misconceptions about the struggle for black majority rule in Zimbabwe and her late husband’s role in that process. – Own correspondent
