Last week I got the idea of writing letters to the prisoners who are involved in the Chimurenga war. I found a list of name in a book called, ‘Ian Smiths Hostages’. I know that for different reasons, some of the prisoners did not receive letters while in jail.  More letters could have been written to encourage them and to inform of the new developments in the nation, and in their families.

Nnenna Okare’s work might help with ideas of how to exhibit the letters.
