Pakati Schools: Cyclone Idai news

I am pleased to report that as far as I have heard the Cyclone has not affected the area in any way.

However, I have had reports from some sources, of relatives and friends living in the affected areas around Chimanimani, some of whom have perished.

If I hear of any details I will add them in to future posts on here. If anyone wishes to send information to be published please use any of the contacts shown on the ‘Important Links’ page. Thank you


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.
