A ZIMBABWEAN cricketer who dared to stand up to President Robert Mugabe is due to speak at a church.

Fast bowler Henry Olonga, who has fled Zimbabwe accused of treason, is booked to speak at New Community Church, Station Road, Sidcup, at 7.30pm on October 7.

The rebellious sportsman and a team mate wore black armbands at a World Cup match in 2003 in protest against the policies of Mr Mugabe's regime.

He was forced to retire from international cricket and go into hiding to avoid the warrant for his arrest.
