the death of neville pickering

His statue sits.
Packed.
Covered.
The name of the statue is Rhodes. 
He was the man of conquest and trade and submission.
He gave his name to Rhodesia and scholarships and libraries.
How long will his name be mentioned in the southern parts of Africa?
How lonmg will his public presence left to itself?

Tendai Huchu wrote a story about the man.

I enjoy reading about Africa. New books. Old books. By African writers. By non-African writers. Novel. History. Travel. Biographies. Autobiographies. Politics. Colonialism. Poetry.
