Henry Olonga @ RFC

On Saturday 10th September Henry Olonga will be joining us for breakfast!

Henry was the first black player to play test cricket for Zimbabwe. He wore a black armband in a Cricket World Cup match to protest against the policies of his government. This act led to a warrant issued in Zimbabwe for Henry's arrest on charges of treason and forced him to retire from international cricket and temporarily go into hiding.

He is a gifted singer and has recorded CDs and about a year ago released his biography entitled Blood, Sweat & Treason. 

The cost of the breakfast is £5 so please contact Josh John to book your place early.
