1) Editorial


'RUSSIAN ROULETTE BULAWAYO STYLE'

Driving in Bulawayo these days is rather akin to playing Russian Roulette, in fact it's pretty invigorating. The average Zimbo could easily offer his own course in defensive driving as we have so much daily experience.

Experience that has been foisted on us primarily by our legendary 'combi' drivers. For years I have stared malevolently at our combi drivers, when they drive as they are won't to do, but these days don't dare engage in eye contact cos they are a tetchy bunch.

By the way, a "combi," for the uninformed, is a taxi style van that can seat up to 12 people but is probably carrying twenty two (and luggage.) Fondly called ETs in the old days, and Matatus in Kenya, each third world country has its own brand of combi.

Their lives are made pretty intolerable by many of the "law enforcement officers" who demand some sort of protectionism.

But then again one also has a lot of reasons to thank the combi drivers , for example one can always tell exactly where there are speed traps ahead as the combi drivers will flash their lights at each other. If you see a combi tearing up the road well in excess of the speed limit you will know perfectly well that there are no speed traps operating at that moment. The drivers have probably been up and down that road several times that day already !

In addition they provide a much needed public service to those of us who have to "foot it" as they say, and imagine if all of those folk who need the services of a combi had their own transport, life on the roads in Bulawayo would be chaotic. Heavens to Betsy it might even take seven minutes to get to work instead of six !!

With all the new Japanese second hand cars in Zimbabwe, life has taken another exciting twist. These dear little creatures (our Zimbabwe Tuk Tuks) are absolutely delightful colours, mink, champagne, mushroom, candy coloured, they all glow delightfully in the sun, and almost everyone has been converted into a Taxi.

I remember in the olden days we had only Rixi Taxis in Zimbabwe, now there must be thousands of taxi companies and they have obviously all been taught to drive by the combi drivers !

Taxi travel in Africa is a must as the public transport system is non existent, and on a serious note if you are a visitor, believe me our taxis are perfectly fine to travel in. The drivers are friendly, chatty, and interested in tourists, just let them know that you insist on the speed limit, ask them to take it easy at the traffic lights, and you can happily meander all over the city and environs for a handful of dollars.

Now on another subject, approaching a robot (aka traffic light) in Zimbabwe takes supreme courage I must say. Is it working ? or isn't it ? Sometimes just one out of the several light bulbs is working so Wimbledon style neck actions are necessary. Sometimes all sides of the intersections are showing red, or all are showing green !! Sometimes the globes are so dim that one cannot ascertain what colour the light is......

In most countries there is a laid down protocol as to how a failed traffic light is approached but not in Zimbabwe! Do not expect to give way to the right, or do not think the four way stop applies or it's first come first served, oh no. It's a case of "lets see who can get there first and eliminate all opposition" !

Hazards on, the big guys in the bakkies and the combis just head as fast as they can into the fray, rather like an ambulance with its light flashing !! The rest of us scatter and hide and pray for salvation. If you are timid like me it could take you several hours to cross an intersection with a failed robot........

Ah yes, and then there are the dreaded traffic police stories - they could take up an entire separate chapter. Every citizen in Zimbabwe has his or her traffic cop horror story. I must admit I only have one but then I am a pillar of society and seldom break the law (Well maybe that's not quite true !)

But that's for another time.

I have been sent the obituary of Noreen Stokes OAM, from the Adelaide Advertiser of 12 May 2012.
Noreen was born in Bulawayo, and her brilliant musical career started with the Bulawayo Eisteddfods, and culminated with the award of the Order of Australia Medal for services to music in 2000 (at age 83).
I wonder if Noreen has any relatives back in Bulawayo or if anyone remembers her?

THANK YOU ALL ONCE AGAIN.



I'm sure that many of you older Bulawayo residents will remember the English children who came out in the Fifties to board at The Rhodesia Fairbridge Memorial College outside Bulawayo near Glasby's Garage. The founder of The Fairbridge Colleges was an idealistic young man who had lived in Inyanga in the thirties, and conceived of the idea of bringing out to the colonies children from the poorer areas of Britain, and children from broken homes. Britain was a cold and grey place before the event of the NHS and benefits system.

Kingsley Fairbridge won a Rhodes scholarship to Exeter College Oxford and after hard work he gained his degree, and also the support of many of his alumni to found the Fairbridge schools. The first one was outside Perth in Australia, but that was truly a school of hard knocks, because the children grew up to work on farms in often really hard circumstances. The Rhodesian one was much better, and the children spoke of undergoing I.Q. tests to test for suitability. They came out on the Union Castle Line ships and thence by steam train from the Cape to Bulawayo.

Now, many years later, through the perseverance of a few of the men, the group has kept in touch and reunions are held in Australia and South Africa as often as possible. Several of the older people have died, and some have disappeared from the radar, but the core group has prospered and remains in touch. Marcel Moss, who lives in Melbourne, maintains an email postbox for them, and Peter Gould in Christchurch has edited a book of stories of the children's memories, written by themselves and called Windows. Most spoke fondly of roaming the countryside and discovering Africa. My husband Mike Davies can remember being stunned by the clear winter skies full of stars, after the smog of Northern England. He was taken under the wing of a parks ranger up at Kariba and spent many exciting holidays on Operation Noah there.

And so it was with great happiness that a group of people from as far afield as Australia and South Africa assembled at Exeter College, the alma mater of Kingsley Fairbridge, in the gracious surrounds of the rector's lodge. Lynne Babbington MBE and John Andrews had organised the whole reunion very well, and we heard an address by Peter Gould, thanking everyone for their efforts in attending the reunion. Steve Andrews, son of John, gave us a brief history of Kingsley Fairbridge's life and works. After a presentation of an honorary laundry number to the college rector, a charming woman, we adjourned to the refectory for lunch on the long benches, polished smooth by many students over the centuries. The vast walls are covered in portraits of all the good and great who have attended the college and made the world a better place with their inventions and writings. We were fortunate to have chosen a dry sunny day in a wet Spring, and after lunch Laura Andrews, who is studying at Exeter College, took us all on a conducted tour of the surrounding colleges, telling us about their history and character.

Later in the day, in a clear warm evening, some of us attended the Evensong at the Exeter chapel. Surrounded by glorious stained glass windows we heard the heavenly voices of the Exeter chapel choir singing and filling the wonderful space with music. It was really good to meet up with old friends and exchange experiences, especially as the older people are gradually fading away.

If anyone knows of someone who would like to get in touch with the Old Fairbridgians please let them know that Marcel Moss is keeping them all in touch. His email address is mahmoss@bigpond.com
