Rusape History


Dear Member,

[Rob Burrett calling...]

Does anyone come from Rusape? I was going around the town the other day and have several heritage-related questions for which no one there could help:

  • I am looking for any contacts or information on the Polish Refugees who were based there in and after WW2. Especially interested in the graves in the overgrown cemetery more or less opposite Makoni Club. 
  • Where is the earlier Rusape cemetery. The dates on the one opposite Makoni Club are not as early as the first years of the town. Are they at one of the churches or another area. Note I am not looking at the current cemetery just out of town nor the one out near Saint Faith’s. There must be graves pre-1910.
  • What is the story about the bell tower opposite the magistrate’s buildings? There was once a plaque but that has gone.

Many thanks
