Is there something special about Ruwa

The later part of the 1990's were special for sightings in Zimbabwe, and Ruwa, later to be the site of the Ariel School landing, was not left out.

On 20 July 1975 Allan Wright - who was with the Censorship Board (a very strict and sober organisation) had a UFO sighting at his home in Ruwa.

He was a sceptic but said that he was outside his horse paddock at about 6:30 pm. when he saw a bright green object, a bit larger than a football, appear above a clump of bamboo. It was dark (July is winter in Zimbabwe) and he felt the hair on the back of his neck stand on end.

The object moved in and east/west direction about 350 metres from where he stood.

It passed over his neighbour's house and all the dogs began to howl and bark furiously. It moved at a fast pace. He was able to view the object for no more than 5 seconds.

What is the interest in the Ruwa area? Here one finds mainly small holdings and dairy or sheep farmers living on land that is hilly and rocky. It is attractive but not always fertile land and many people who farm there do so more as a hobby than a viable business.

Perhaps the UFOs are interested in studying these people who are, on the whole conservative and open in what they say. It is a very religious community with social life often centred around church and charity events.
