The President of Zimbabwe Emmerson Mnangagwa is launching his book titled “A life of Sacrifice”.
According to permanent secretary in the office of Ministry of Information and Publicity, Nick Mangwana the virtual ceremony started at 0900hrs today at State House.
A LIFE OF SACRIFICE is the first ever biography of the President of Zimbabwe, His Excellency Emmerson Hlupeko Dambudzo Mnangagwa.
Remarkably detailed, it traces the tumultuous life of a freedom fighter who escapes the noose by a whisker, to suffer a ten-year imprisonment in isolation in settler colonial Rhodesia’s cruel D-Class cell reserved for persons deemed dangerous.
Undeterred, the freedom fighter rejoins comrades to wage the armed struggle from Mozambique until final victory in 1980 when Zimbabwe becomes free and independent.
Zimbabwe’s first State Security minister, the middle-aged Emmerson bears the onerous burden of coordinating the delicate process of integrating hitherto warring armies into one National Army loyal to the new dispensation.
Simultaneously, he is also watching over the nascent State.
