The Rule of Law in Africa - The Zimbabwean

The Rule of Law in Africa - The Zimbabwean | Wildlife Conservation: People and Stories | Scoop.it
At a meeting in Harare yesterday Mr. Mugabe stated quite clearly, that the persons responsible for the murder of white Zimbabwean farmers during the land invasions would “never be prosecuted”. Tens of thousands of people who were members of Zapu and lived in the south west of the country were murdered, beaten, raped, tortured and harassed between 1983 and 1987 during a campaign that Mr. Mugabe named “Gukurahundi” or the storm that “washes clean”. Over a million-people fled the genocide and moved to South Africa and Botswana. Not a single person has been prosecuted for any of these crimes.

Remembering Bev Pervan

Remembering Bev Pervan | Wildlife Conservation: People and Stories | Scoop.it
Bev died from cancer on 30th April last year (2016). We remember her today because of the impact she made on animal welfare in South Africa. Most people go through life making acquaintances. Bev went through life making friends who would die for her. This was because she cared so much for her friends, both human and animal. Watching Bev work with wild animals and birds was a privilege. There is nothing glamorous about wildlife rehab work. It is all about getting bitten, kicked and scratched on a daily basis. Love of animals by itself is not enough. The rehabber needs toughness. And Bev had toughness in spades.
