3rd November 2023

By Michelle Nokuthaba Mpofu.

Today, 3rd November 2023, marks the 38th year since the enforced disappearance of my maternal grandfather, Fuleza Gibson “Ndawana” Sibanda.

He disappeared at the hands of Zimbabwean state machinery at the height of the Gukurahundi genocide in Matabeleland in Zimbabwe.

Fuleza Gibson “Ndawana” Sibanda was abducted by four men, two of whom were in Police uniform and two in civilian attire on 3rd November 1985, at the Brethren in Christ Church in Mpopoma, Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.

He was never to be seen again.

This state-sponsored tragedy left a permanent scar on our family and the community.

I’m always in fear of the Zimbabwean State Machinery, hurting and forever in sorrow. There is no closure.
