Victory over Injustice

Victory over Injustice

Against police evidence, without a body and on presumptions, Rusty Labuschagne was convicted of drowning a fish poacher during Mugabe’s rule. He served 10 years in Zimbabwe’s prisons, including the notorious Chikurubi Maximum Security Prison, where he suffered through the Zim dollar crash, with food shortages, no running water, and people dying around him daily.

He speaks eloquently about being subjected to conditions most people would find unendurable, having to dig deep within himself to find solutions to an unbearable situation. His resilience, ability to face adversity, and pure grit are an unparalleled inspiration.

After years of bitterness and anger, Rusty learned how to forgive those who had caused his suffering. He found that who you are and the depth of your determination will get you through life’s darkest moments. Learn how to harness your inner strength and let go of what you cannot control. Ultimately, it was faith in
God, a positive mental attitude, and lessons in forgiveness, gratitude, and humility that probably saved his life.
