Angolan Rendezvous: Man and Nature in the Shadow of War - Tamar Golan and Tamar Ron~"In Angola everything is interwoven: life and death, war and peace"
Ostensibly, this book is in two voices: Tamar Golan, Israel's first Ambassador to Angola, deals with the political/diplomatic aspects, while the stories on gorillas, the Black giant sable and Nature are by zoologist/ecologist, Tamar Ron. But in reality, the book has one voice, one of love for Angola, its long-suffering people, vast landscapes and wild animals, and their ongoing struggle for survival. Africa is associated with war, disease, oil, diamonds, hunger, corruption, destruction, death-a lost and forlorn world. In Angola all these are manifest, yet the authors fell in love with the country, with the wonderful people, the children and the women, whose daily struggle for survival arouses both sympathy and admiration, with Angola's enchanting natural beauty, mysterious cultures, rare biodiversity and fiery sunsets over an endless ocean. For many years a bloody war of independence raged and, as soon at it ended, the country was thrown into a terrible civil war, during the height of the Cold War. Millions were killed, maimed, or lost their homes. The war is now over but the minefields still claim their gruesome harvest. Everything is interwoven: life and death, war and peace; children who know no childhood and adults who dream of a long-lost innocence; men and women, tough warriors who suddenly find softness and warmth in their souls; betrayal of and return to tradition; man and Nature, their fates irrevocably intertwined. "Calma, calma!" is the answer for every problem-your visa has expired, you are wracked with malaria, there's a power cut and you're stuck in the elevator between the 15th and 16th floors ... yet things have a way of working themselves out in Angola. But there is something pleasant in the air, something calming, warm, comforting. Something that can only be described as calma, calma!

Chaya Four One is an expression that evokes memories for anyone who worked in the underground mines of Zambia. It simply means, "Hit Four One" and comes from the bell codes used by the onsetters, the men that contolled where the mine hoist was directed to next. Four One was the code for the surface, so particularly on pay days and holidays, men from any particular level were anxious to get to the surface and by- pass all other stops. So the cry chaya four one, chaya four one was heard a lot!

It is 1969 and James Martin, with a newly won degree in mining engineering, sets out to take up employment in Zambia, independent for just five years after British rule. He takes the boat from Southampton to Capetown then motors upcountry through South Africa and Rhodesia to Zambia. He befriends another engineer, Tom, who with his wife, Rita, is also traveling to the same mine.

Together James and Tom go through the training and early assignments given to new learner officials, as the junior bosses are so nicely labeled. James meets his future wife, Katrina, and through her is introduced into another part of the local society that is apart from the expatriate society he naturally is part of.

Throughout his first year on the mine, James learns that there is more to running an operation than his degree course ever taught him, particularly when it comes to people and their foibles, prejudices and outlook. He learns that much of what is held to be true about the different racial and ethnic groups he meets is untrue and that, in the final analysis, people are people - good and bad.~Chaya Four One|ISBN 141208959X|~11298~11940~Great North Road~
Death of Dignity - V Brittain~Angola has been embroiled in war almost continuously since its independence in 1975. Yet despite countless casualties, including some two million displaced people, Western media have paid scant attention to this devastating conflict - one of apartheid South Africa's dirty secrets. Victoria Brittain has witnessed the horror and destruction in Angola for longer than almost any other anglophone journalist. In Death of Dignity she uniquely combines a narrative of the war based on his­torical political analysis with first-hand accounts of many decisive events and portraits of leading personalities. The author examines the origin and course of the conflict and demonstrates how Africa's most heroic revolution was deliberately derailed and destroyed by United States foreign policy. Death of Dignity unveils an important and much neglected history, and one that is vital to a thorough under­standing of post-colonial Africa.
'Tells the miserable story of a revolution destroyed, analysing the moves of the mighty and speaking up for the millions who have suffered as a result.' Guardian
'Few journalists know Angola better than Victoria Brittain. This is an excellent and timely account of a conflict for which we in the West share much of the blame.' Jon Snow.

Gallic Thunderbolt: The story of René Leclézio and Lonrho Sugar - compliled by Jerry Gosnell~Lonrho Sugar Corporation, one of Africa's most successful sugar companies, was the creation of one man, René Leclézio, Lonrho's "Gallic Thunderbolt". From its beginning in Malawi in 1965 he made it an international force in the sugar world by the time he retired in 1994. Lonrho Sugar was that rarest of animals, a multinational operating exclusively in Africa which always made profits; survived floods, droughts and coups and established a reputation for long term commitment to the communities in which it worked. This book is not a biography of an individual, nor is it a history of a company. It is a collection of reminiscences written by the people who were close to René and the story of the group he created, told by the men and women who were there.

The Book

Lonrho Sugar Corporation, one of Africa's most successful sugar companies, was the creation of one man, René Leclézio, who nurtured it from its infancy at SUCOMA in Malawi in 1965 to become an international force in the sugar world by the time he retired in 1994.

René Leclézio was Lonrho's "Gallic Thunderbolt" but without the backing of Tiny Rowland, the charismatic Chief Executive of Lonrho, the story would have been very different. Tiny and René were the perfect team. Tiny gave René all the corporate and political support he needed, but knew when to stand back and let René run the show the way only he knew. René became Tiny's most trusted director and close personal friend and Tiny paid him the ultimate compliment by asking him to become Chairman of Lonrho in 1991.

Following the creation of SUCOMA in 1965, it really all happened in a whirlwind spell of less than a year between October 1967, when Lonrho purchased Anglo Ceylon and General Estates' three sugar mills and estates in Mauritius, and mid 1968 when the dynamic duo engineered a reverse take-over of Swaziland Sugar Milling Company (SSM), bringing Ubombo Ranches under Lonrho control. Shortly thereafter, Glendale Sugar Milling was brought into the fold, thus creating an international sugar group with six, later with the addition of Dwangwa seven, mills in four countries.

This book is not a biography of an individual, nor is it a history of a company. It is a collection of reminiscences written by the people who were close to René and the story of the group he created, told by the men and women who were there.



Book Review

The life and times of a sugar daddy

By the time he retired from Lonhro Sugar Corporation in 1994, René Leclézio had achieved what mere mortals only dream about. From humble beginnings as laboratory chemist for Beau- Séjour and Beau-Vallon sugar factories, René went on to become Chairman of Lonrho, an international force in the sugar world. Along the way, he inspired all those who worked with him and accomplished the Herculean task of turning all Lonrho ventures in Africa, a continent renowned for its political, economic and meteorological volatility, into profitable, well-run entities.

Gallic Thunderbolt is one of the rare birds of the book world. It is unostentatious and unassuming, yet it provides for great reading from cover to cover. Through the contributions of René’s collaborators and friends, it effortlessly retraces the steps of a man renowned for the energy and stubbornness with which he attacked life. Gosnell explains how Leclézio obtained his poetic nickname, “He was soon to become known as the Gallic Thunderbolt for his impossible working and travelling habits. However inconvenient or simply exhausting working to René’s pattern might become, hardly anyone ever let him down, mainly because of the example he set, his inspiring leadership and the Gallic charm he used to such great effect when spirits were flagging.”

Gallic Thunderbolt is written in a self-effaced and limpid manner privileging substance over stylistic flourish. The subject matter and the almost maniacal attention to detail enable the reader to relive René’s travails across the vast African continent all the way to Lonhro’s London headquarters. The early years in Hippo Valley in Zimbabwe and the SUCOMA estate in Malawi provide a plethora of earthy, and often humorous, anecdotes of the living conditions encountered by the Mauritian clique. Guy de Rosnay’s reminiscence of the SUCOMA era is a good example: “It was thrilling because there was everything to do. We were on virgin land, there were no means of communication and living at Chikwawa, 50 kilometres from the estate, the reigning mosquitoes wrapped us in one massive and aggressive cloud!”

The glorious past of Lonrho

This is not simply the chronicle of a success story. Instead, it is a fascinating foray into the world of yesteryear when business was a mountain that only true pioneers could conquer. The reader will also note that most of René’s relationships were forged for life and the respect he inspired amongst his staff ensured that they would always strive to get him what he wanted even when that implied making considerable sacrifices. René had many of the characteristics inherent to leaders and those who worked with or for him instinctively knew that nothing short of excellence would be acceptable.

A key facet of René’s rapid ascendancy was his symbiotic relationship with the mercurially brilliant Tiny Rowland, CEO of Lonrho. The latter’s connections with African leaders coupled with the dynamism of his Gallic Thunderbolt, gifted the duo with a Midas touch that they used profusely. Chris Saunders, an early collaborator describes the chemistry that united Tiny and René: “He was recruited by Tiny Rowland of Lonrho who recognized this man as a kindred soul – someone who was prepared to take risks, fight for a principle, be happy to go to the ends of the earth if he saw an advantage for his employer, and most important of all, recognize loyalty as the supreme gift that a man can offer his superior.”

By the time René reached the pinnacle of his career, being named Chairman of Lonrho in 1991, the company was stuck in the financial doldrums with profits falling from £273 million in 1990 to £80 million in 1992. The purchase of a large minority in the share capital by German entrepreneur Dieter Bock heralded the dawn of a new era where investment brokers decided on policy and the African estates, on which the Lonrho Sugar empire had been built, were all but forgotten. Bock, who had acquired the office of Joint Chief Executive and Managing Director along with the share capital, was to sound the death knell by selling Lonhro in 1997. Thankfully, René had resigned in 1994 so he didn’t have to witness the end first-hand.

René Leclezio’s story is the story of sugar in Africa – politically, economically and, most importantly, socially. His life shows us that no obstacle is insurmountable, no problem without a solution. This is the spirit we must rekindle if we are to have even a glimmer of hope.

It is 1972 and James and Katrina Martin set off for a well earned month of vacation from Zambia to South Africa and England. They return to find that James is to be offered an opportunity to start a new mine away from the Zambian Copperbelt, an opportunity that he takes. They travel to the Mtuga operation which is located just off the Great North Road in the Mkushi district of Zambia. The mine is sited on old workings from the 1920's and is being re-opened as a surface mine. The Mkushi District is better known for its tobacco and maize farms and in the late 1970's for the camps of the Zimbabwe People's Revolutionary Army (ZIPRA), an organization that they will encounter a few times.

Life is complicated when the Rhodesians close the border with Zambia and Zambia retaliates, potentially stranding all their new mining machinery outside the country. They must formulate a plan to get everything to the mine and the operation started on time and to budget. Things are further complicated by corporate politics and rivalries that create problems along the way.

Although now married for almost three years, James and Katrina continue to discover each other and their romance and desire for one another is as strong as ever. They take every opportunity they can to be away and alone together in the more remote parts of Zambia.~Just Off the Great North Road|ISBN 1425168159|~11298~11895~great north road, zambia~

After an exciting series of adventures with his friend Nwata, Harrison reaches the Zambezi where he becomes chief Changa-Changa and rules a vast area. He has a dangerous affair with Bonita, wife of the slaver Matakenya, but he also still loves the white missionary, Venetia. Although Harrison rids the country of the scourge of Matakenya and other slavers, his rule is finally ended when Cecil Rhodes usurps his claims. Torn between two cultures, Harrison is forced to choose between loyalty to his people and his love for Venetia.

The book takes its title from a woman, Mariamu, who plans to trade her supply of salt, a rare commodity, for sugar, an even rarer commodity, in Malawi, thus enabling her to feed her children in the coming year. The harrowing journey is as colourful as its passengers-civilians and soldiers alike. A fragile love is born amid the death- between a young nurse returning home and a soldier who's tasked with protecting her. A despicable officer whose behaviour repulses; insightful railwaymen and an unseen enemy whose numerous and varied attacks leave the passengers terrified, exhausted and dying of thirst-these are the protagonists.

"Those who attacked the train were terrible.
But, at times, those who defended it were even worse"

The Train of Salt and Sugar is to Mozambique what The Kite Runner is to Afghanistan. Out of every conflict situation comes a myriad of stories, stories about people, set against the backdrop of war. During the bitter and protracted Mozambican civil war there are many such stories, but none so courageous nor so passionate as that told in The Train of Salt and Sugar.

Mozambique, after many years of war, first for their independence against the Portuguese and then against each other during the civil war, was left a desolate wasteland; with little or no infrastructure and a starving population. Trains seldom ran, the tracks had been sabotaged and the probability of enemy attacks was very real. Yet on a misty morning in the town of Nampula, in northern Mozambique, a convoy of three trains, loaded with supplies, three garrisons of soldiers and over 600 passengers left relative safety, destined for Cuamba, a town 341kilometers to the west, bordering Malawi. The book takes its title from a woman, Mariamu, who plans to trade her supply of salt, a rare commodity, for sugar, an even rarer commodity, in Malawi, thus enabling her to feed her children in the coming year.

The harrowing journey is as colourful as its passengers-civilians and soldiers alike. A fragile love is born amid the death- between a young nurse returning home and a soldier who's tasked with protecting her. A despicable officer whose behaviour repulses; insightful railwaymen and an unseen enemy whose numerous and varied attacks leave the passengers terrified, exhausted and dying of thirst-these are the protagonists.




Licínio de Azevedo arrived in Mozambique in 1977 in order to work in the National Film Institute researching stories of the War of Independence, to serve as the basis for feature film scripts. The first piece of research he did for the Film Institute resulted in his first book Relatos de Povo Armado (Tales of the Armed People) which told real stories found in the field during three months in the Moeda Plains in the north of Mozambique; the first region to be liberated in the war. Later he began to make films using the same creative technique of mixing the narrative styles of factual and fictional storytelling. In his documentaries he uses the dramatic structure used for fiction. His fictions are always based on fact. The Train of Salt and Sugar is the result of the same creative process~The Train of Salt and Sugar|ISBN 9781920143121|~11298~11452~~
