Overview
The story of a farmer and pilot raised in colonial Kenya who went on to play an active role in Mozambican politics whilst leading Lonrho’s foreign investment in that country.

This is a true African tale of persistence and tenacity.

The story of a farmer and pilot raised in colonial Kenya who went on to play an active role in Mozambican politics whilst leading Lonrho’s foreign investment in that country.

This unique memoir describes life during Mozambique’s transition from communism to democracy, from poverty to an investor’s choice. It has been a life creating farms, gold mining and operating hotels through war and peace. Then supporting peasant farmers and developing the conservation of a private tropical island.

It is proof that nothing is impossible and Africa offers opportunity to those who persist. It is a personal record of the changes in modern Africa and Mozambique in particular an investor’s destination. It should also be an enjoyable read.

John Hewlett

John Hewlett moved to Mozambique in 1985 from Zambia. Mozambique was a Marxist-Leninist poverty stricken lost paradise. This was a life during a vicious civil war which led to democracy and peace. After a Lonrho boardroom coup he left the company. Hewlett went back to basics to invest in small scale farmers and develop a luxury private island.
