Former Pakati student profile 4 – Moses Chadenga

Moses Chadenga

My name is Moses Chadenga, I was born in 1974 at St Pauls Hospital, Musami. I was at Pakati Primary from 1981 to 1987, then at Pakati Secondary from 1988 to 1989. My favourite lessons were Geography, Shona, Science and Mathematics. My favourite memory at Secondary school is when I topped at ZJC in the subject of Shona and it was announced at the Assembly point.

When I left Pakati I transfered to Harare High school where I finished my O levels. I then got a job and worked for Lever Brothers for 2 years, then later joined Tedco Management Services where I worked for another 2 years.

In 1998 I formed a company with my brother, and we operated for 3 years. The company I formed was manufacturing batiks. We operated in Glenlorne area of Harare. I was also into sign writing, I am the one who designed and painted the Pakati sign post.

I then came back in Mrewa and started a farming business, until i was contracted by Pakati Secondary school and worked as a clerk from 2012 to 2015. When I was working I started studying with Bindura University.

I was inspired by Mr Walker & am now following in his footsteps. I finished the diploma in Science Education with Bindura University specialising in mathematics. I am waiting for the results, after which I will be a qualified maths teacher. I now have a contract with Chanetsa Secondary school, a neighbour and sister school to Pakati.


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 have been a Civil Servant in Bradford since 2005.
