MORE ABOUT ZIMBABWE
Zimbabwe is a landlocked country in southern Africa. It is bordered by South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, and Mozambique.
From the late 1800’s, the British had control over the territory they named Rhodesia in honour of Rhodes. Southern Rhodesia would later become Zimbabwe while northern Rhodesia became Zambia. Many forts were set up and guarded by British armed police, one of the forts known as Fort Salisbury is now known as Harare. With settling of Europeans taking place, the British took control over labour, precious metals and other natural resources in the area.
Zimbabwe gained full independence from Britain in 1980 when Robert Mugabe became prime minister.
