Up to 30 years ago….

Some photos from the past….

While I worked at Pakati, I had a visit from my parents & took the opportunity to visit other parts of Zimbabwe

Pakati had a new signboard put up some years ago, but the area seems to have changed llittle….these last 2 photos were taken in 2014

My visit to Pakati is much anticipated, not least by myself. Great to have a chance to visit friends old and new, settle back into a less hectic pace of life if only for a brief period. Watch out for the next set of blog posts direct from Zimbabwe….


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.
