FAK608-Peter Wright on escaping Africa

Avatar photolike this

Fascinating discussion with Peter about his life in Rhodesia, South Africa, and finally Canada.

He talks about being thrown off his farm, being thrown in jail, escaping with just his life and starting over (again) in his mid fifties in a foreign and cold land.

[…] Ab had been interested in Southern African history since questioning the conventional narrative back in the 1980s. He is an engaging interviewer, one who is genuinely interested in his guests’ opinions. Ab had said that we would talk for an hour, that stretched to two hours by the time we finished. We talked about the (often unpublicised) history of South Africa and Rhodesia. That of the latter unfolding over a similar period to that of much of Ontario and the Western provinces of Canada. You can listen to the episode here. […]

In 1979 I met a couple in England that moved from South Africa, they left because they had two girls and they were terrified that they would be raped, that was just before the aids hoax when men were told sleeping with a virgin would protect them from it. What kind of world were we living in then, never mind now?

According to most in these circles , the situation described in your comment would be regarded as completely fake. 1979 never existed.

That was a fascinating interview. Thank you!

I have a good friend who lived in South Africa and his mother and step father (his father died in a surfing accident) still live there. It’s really bad there but they are missionaries so they stay. They can’t own firearms legally but anybody can buy them easily if they want. My friend’s family won’t “break the law” so they are at the mercy of the thugs. It’s truly sad.

I hope Peter comes back again soon to tell us some more stories

That was the best show ever, it was fascinating yet hard to hear. I have a niece who lives in Johannesburg and if not for her we wouldn’t know how horrific it was and is out there.
Great rapport and seamless, well done.
