Manovi: The battle for land in Zimbabwe


“This book is so much more than just a story. It is an insight into the history of the country; a period lived through by the Marr family, with particular emphasis on commercial farming and the fate that befell it. It follows their farming lives; their achievements despite all the hurdles they faced as they developed virgin land into a viable farming property and the family home over 31 years, only to lose it all in the fast track Land Acquisition Programme of the year 2000 and onwards.

Over the past hundred years or so Zimbabwe’s history has brought tragedy to many, both black and white. This need not be the case in the future if all will accept and learn from past mistakes. Our target should be to allow all Zimbabweans, irrespective of race or creed, and by their own endeavours, to realise true fulfilment of their aspirations without fear from any quarter. “
John Laurie, 2008
President – Zimbabwe Commercial Farmers Union 1983-8

This book is a heart wrenching account of the joys, the tragedies and the blood, sweat and tears- that were invested by the Marr family in their farm, their workers and their community…it will make you laugh and cry..and ultimately will give you a greater understanding of the complexity of the plight of Zimbabwean farmers and farm-workers alike..
