Abstract

Professor Chengetai Zvobgo will be remembered as a conscientious and hardworking scholar of history, who devoted himself to scrupulous research in archives to understand the social development of Africans in Zimbabwe in response to the western impact. He used the Christianmissionary penetration of Zimbabwe at the beginning of the 20th Century, starting with the Wesleyan Methodist Missionary Society, under the tutelage of the redoubtable Professor George Shepperson of Edinburgh University, as the launch pad of his lifetime intellectual pursuit. That journeysoon broadened to cover all the missionary organisations that laboured in Zimbabwe and also embraced all their three ministries of teaching,healing as well as evangelisation.
