With reference to the UFO sighting July 1985 - two official statements

On July 22, 1985, in western Zimbabwe, a UFO was witnessed by dozens of persons on the
ground and in the control tower at Bulawayo Airport, as well as by the pilots of two Hawk jets
that were scrambled to pursue it. The UFO was also tracked on radar. The UFO was very
bright and rounded, with a short cone above it, and evaded the Hawk jets.
Air Marshal Azim Daudpota:
"This was no ordinary UFO. Scores of people saw it. It was no illusion, no
deception, no imagination." (The Times, London, August 3, 1985.) (top)
Air Commodore David Thorne, Director General of Operations in a October 24, 1985 letter
to Timothy Good stated:
"[Although not speaking officially], as far as my Air Staff is concerned, we believe
implicitly that the unexplained UFOs are from some civilization beyond ourplanet." (Good, T., ibid.)


  1. Hi there
    Perhaps you should go to alienexistence which is a UK based site and post something, tell you what, I never knew about any sightings from Africa, well, apart from Egypt I guess but I had little idea that countries that are thought of as 3rd world (i hate that way of putting it) anyway my point is, its a common thought that only the UK USA, China Russia and a few other European countries, actually have sightings.
    A few months ago I was asked right out, why is it that its only the west that have sightings, I was gob smacked to find out that most people do not realise that these countries little known to most, do actually report UFO sightings, however, how would we know unlessw someone is telling us about it! Ummm anyway, err ok after that tiny rant ....

  2. I wanted to contact you regarding the sighting of a UFO craft in Kwazulu Natal in 1994. This was shortly after the Ruwa sighting. It took place on a shool outing one evening.

  3. A senior teacher (headmaster)Gerry Wilkinson, from 'Cowan House' a private Prep all boys school took a group of students to a function at a nearby private school, Hilton College. On their return from the function that night he and his group of students saw what they described as a 'space craft' landed with lights on around the middle periphery of the craft were windows, They viewed this craft alongside the road. The following day the incident was reported in the local newspaper 'The Natal Witness'. However the matter was hushed up and no-one talked about it again. Soon after this incident Gerry and his wife Stella re-located to a petroleum company run school in Angola. My son was a pupil at the school at the the time the incident ocurred, ie Cowan House.

  4. Thank you for your assistance I am trying to follow this up and any additional information you might have would be greatly appreciated. This is the only first had report we have been aboe to trace.

  5. My sister was the air traffic controller that day at Bulawayo Airport. She saw it live & in color in broad day light. It hovered for about an hour over the airport.
    According to her a craft answering the same discription was reported an hour later over China(this was via reports logged via AITA)

    1. I saw this, in Bulawayo,i was walking along the side of the road with my GF towards the city hall, bright day..clear sky, i looked up and saw this goldish bright round object speeding overhead, my eyes could hardly follow it. As it reached what looked like above the city hall ir Arced upwards and shot into the sky and out of sight. I never reported it, this is the first time i am reporting it anywhere. Call me crazy or whatever i know what i saw and its not something you forget.

  6. Many years ago my father whom is a devote christian..claimed that as he was driving to Harare( in Zimbabwe) early one morning in a sparsely inhabited part of a country drove for some miles with a craft that followed along side him at a distance of around 500-1000 m. He could only describe it as a shape of a rifle side on.It kept the same speed and distance to him for around five Km....this was in the late seventies...
    At the time there was a rumuor that the US had a secret runway whereby they were testing air craft...The country was also in the middle of a nasty bush war..at the time..
