Sightings in Bulawayo

At 8:30 pm on the 16th of July 1975 David Burgess, prison officer, and a friend saw an object hovering over Khami Prison which was about 2-3 km from their car.

It was orange, almost circular but with a flattish bottom and round at the top.

It appeared to be stationary at first but as the men drove on it disappeared towards the east.

On the following night another prison officer saw the same object and Mr and Mrs Rossiter and their three children together with Mr and Mrs Lombard saw a bright round object 4km north-east of Khami at about 7:30pm.

It appeared as stationary for a few moments and then again moved of rapidly in an easterly direction.

  1. Hi, I had a very interesting conversation with a lady in NZ this morning. She is deep in hear 80's and she lived in Zimbabwe (then Rhodesia) since 1954. She told me that she was out in the 'field' one morning, all by herself when she saw what looked like a huge space ship... it was hovering over the field and then moved over their maize crops and then dissapeard. She hurried home and draw pictures of what she saw... and then a few days later saw in the Bulawayo Newspapers that a number of people have seen this. She can not remember the year... but it was a few years after '54 when they moved to Rhodesia. I am suspect it must be the '58 sighting over Bulawayo. I am very curious about how the political events changed during or after each sighting....
