Man who spent 10 years in prison after being falsely accused, shares his story in an exclusive online event!


South Africa (30 March 2020) – After 10 years of incarceration for a crime he never committed, Rusty Labuschagne walked out of a Zimbabwean prison cell with a remarkable story to tell. Today he’s an international speaker and best-selling author of the book Beating Chains.

One is immediately struck by his sincerity and humility as he delivers a dramatic account of his transformational experience.

Rusty has been through a trauma few have experienced. In 2003, the successful Zimbabwean businessman, who ran a safari outfit, flew his own aircraft and had a fishing resort on Lake Kariba, was framed by a poacher, the police and the courts and wrongfully convicted of drowning a poacher.

He served 10 years in Zimbabwe’s prisons, including notorious Chikurubi Maximum Security Prison during the Zim dollar crash, with food shortages, no running water and people dying around him daily.

Rusty’s message to audiences is that everyone is faced with challenges, but it is who you are, and the depth of your determination, that will get you through life’s darkest moments. He shows how one can harness one’s inner strength and let go of what one cannot control.

On the 5th of April, which marks day 10 of South Africa’s lockdown, Rusty will share his story with you.

During these uncertain times of the COVID-19 pandemic, Rusty’s positive mental attitude, leadership qualities and lessons in forgiveness, gratitude and humility will bring a personal, transformative and authentic message of hope and freedom to you and your family.

This is an online event, and ticket holders will receive a link to access the stream.
