About: Against the Grain. Memories of a Zimbabwean Newsman

As an independent newspaper editor, courageously exposing the truth, Geoffrey Nyarota was on a collision course with the Zimbabwean government and would become Robert Mugabe’s public enemy number one. The newspapers he edited during his career, the Chronicle, the Financial Gazette and the Daily News, were often the lone voice of dissent against a government that had betrayed its people. They chronicled the decline of the country under the Mugabe regime, and how the freedom achieved in the war of liberation was replaced by wholesale government corruption and oppression. As government stepped up the campaign against a free press, Geoffrey Nyarota was subjected to extreme harassment, facing intimidation, arrest, the bombing of his printing press - and a contract on his life. Against the Grain records Geoffrey Nyarota’s early life as a schoolteacher caught in the crossfire of a guerrilla war, his cadetship at a newspaper subsequently acquired by the Mugabe government, the official corruption and graft he exposed during his career, and how he eventually had to flee his homeland in 2003 to go into exile. Gripping and-insightful, Against the Grain is his story.
