Geoffrey Nyarota was the editor of the Daily News, Zimbabwe�s only independent newspaper, for four years. In this time, he chronicled the decline of the country under Robert Mugabe�s ZANU-PF-controlled regime. As a young man, Nyarota fervently believed that his children would know the freedom of democracy that he himself had been denied in colonial Rhodesia before Mugabe became independent Zimbabwe�s first head of state in 1980. But when he discovered that the returned war heroes were more interested in enriching themselves than in uplifting the poverty-stricken millions, he unflinchingly began to expose the wholesale corruption and greed, nepotism and fraud perpetrated by the Mugabe government. It took state-planted bombs, torture and intimidation, costly legal fees and, finally, a contract on Nyarota�s life before he fled his homeland at the beginning of 2003 to go into exile.
