Dickson Netsha Sibanda

Starting a business in Zambia and aiding the struggle for Zimbabwe

by Pathisa Nyathi

Dickson Netsha Sibanda’s life encompasses a great number of the key events of the past half century in Zimbabwe and the central African region as a whole. This biography is as much a social, economic and political history as much a history of one man. It is a story about movement and the cultural changes it brought, encompassing the pre-colonial arrival of Sibanda’s family in what would become Matabeleland, the upheavals of the arrival of the Ndebele and colonialisation by the British South Africa Company. Sibanda’s life is also a political story encompassing the rural spread of nationalism and armed struggle in exile. Above all the Sibanda’s story is one of an irrepressible entrepreneur with a powerful desire for education and unable to let opportunity pass him by.
