I had no idea 2…

….about any ‘legacy’ I may have left, but here are some more comments made to me recently about my project…I cannot really put into words how much it means to me that I have the support of the schools & community members, students & colleagues past and present.

“I am so happy for what you are doing, as was a learner at both Pakati Primary and Secondary” (Maceline Gandanhamo)

“It’s wonderful you are going to do great things for the school” (Sue Chadenga)

“You left indelible marks…my aim is to name an item like a (classroom) block in your name” “I am humbled by what you did and you are continuing to do. God bless you.” (Doc Bothwell Riside Mafema)

“Thanks very much for your effort” (Isdore Chatereza)


My name is Chris Walker, and between January 1989 and September 1991 I worked, through VSO (Voluntary Service Overseas), at Pakati Secondary School in Murehwa South district in Zimbabwe. I was a Maths teacher for 2 years, the Acting Head for the last 8 months there. I have also taught in Botswana & the UK, had 4 years working for VSO, and spent the last 14 years as a Civil Servant in Bradford. I married a Zimbabwean woman & we have 2 sons.
