Dr. Masango Matimura
The founder of Holistic Peace and Development Zimbabwe, Masango Matimura was a 2010-11 US State Department-funded Humphrey Fellow at the University of Minnesota. He began weekly meetings with Wilberforce International Institute in 2010, exploring the implications of his work to foster biblical peacemaking and development in the southern African nation of Zimbabwe. A trained pastor, Masango is a recognized leader in eastern Zimbabwe, where he trains other pastors as well as community members to find community-based and biblical solutions to political violence, corruption, and underdevelopment. Wilberforce staff have visited Masango on three different occasions to help him further his work.
