Carole Collins

Carole Collins was a friend of Africa ­ and of Africa Confidential. Journalist, academic, and most strikingly, advocate for peace and justice, she had been deeply involved with Africa since the mid-1980s, when she and her husband and trades union activist Steve Askin, worked in Kenya. The following year, they moved to Zimbabwe, where they stayed for four years. 'Among the many highpoints for her work were on behalf of rural women in Angola and Mozambique, writing on the evils of the Mobutu Sese Seko regime in Zaïre (now Congo-Kinshasa) and the months she spent living as the only outsider in a small Sudanese community', writes the Africa Faith and Justice Network.
