The Return of a noble cartoonist Victor Chadoka
June 22, 2011 by Webmaster
The Zimbabwe Association (ZA) last week welcomed outstanding cartoonist Victor Chadoka who had spent a long spell of time detained at Haslar Immigration Removal centre in the United Kingdom.
At a Zimbabwe Association drop in session held recently in Leicester, ZA Convenor of Advisory Committee, activist and joint Leicester Drop In Centre leader Patson Muzuwa praised Chadoka for his tireless contribution through his artwork in educating the Zimbabwean community in the UK about the situation back home under the Robert Mugabe/Zanu PF regime.
Chadoka who uses the pseudonym ‘Vic Chad’ has produced cartoons which depict the suffering of the Zimbabwean mass under Mugabe and his Zanu-PF. His work has been widely distributed through out the UK and mostly during Vigil gatherings held every Saturday outside the Zimbabwean Embassy.
He has also produced a DVD called ‘Open letter to Mr. President’ with almost the same theme as his artwork. Right at the end of the video clip, he wishes Mugabe ‘DEAD and BURIED’, which is a sentiment he shares with most Zimbabweans. The DVDs were recently distributed at a Vigil protest.

He has been in detention from March 2008 and was released in December 2010. He has since been attending the vigil gatherings and is an active volunteer at the Zimbabwe Association Leicester Drop-in Centre.
