Journalist, Violet Gonda returns to Zimbabwe after 17 years in exile
In August 2000, Violet Gonda left her home country to study for an MA in International Journalism in London. She expected it would be for one year. However, she was to spend the next 17 years in exile as a result of being banned from returning to Zimbabwe by President Robert Mugabe’s regime.
But she found that her media work in exile meant that she was not a stranger to many Zimbabweans.
