Henry Olonga

Henry Olonga’s stand against Mugabe’s regime was well documented but precipitated an exile from his homeland and fears for his safety. Zimbabwe’s most famous ever cricket personality talks exclusively to nouse…

Are you sorry to have left Zimbabwe?
I wouldn’t want to live in Zimbabwe right now. I don’t think anyone would. If it was normal again I’d love to, but not right now.

How do you see the future of cricket under the regime?
It’s too vast a subject to say – the regime affects every facet of life over their so much. Maybe there will be a new regime soon.

How do you rate Zimbabwe’s chances of turning this series around?
Nil (he indicates a circle with thumb and forefinger). I think they’ll struggle.
