Postal Services

Mrs M E Ashwin was the postal agent for St Patrick’s Mission. On 1 December 1961, the agency was run from Garry Owen Farm owned by the Ashwins. However, the name was not deemed appropriate for postal services and the name of the nearby Rosmalind Farm was used instead.

The postal agency was closed 23 September 1963.

St Patrick’s Mission

St Patrick’s Mission

Gwelo

 

St. Patrick’s Mission (St. Patrick’s parish) is located in Mzilikazi, a suburb of Bulawayo, Zimbabwe (part of Makokoba “Constituency”/Township). St. Patrick’s Mission was established by the Jesuits as of 1902.

Mzilikazi is named after the founder of the Ndebele nation, King Mzilikazi. Prior to independence, Makokoba (Makhokhoba) was a segregated township of Bulawayo.  The development of trade unionism began in Makokoba in 1928. In 1945, an important strike by railway workers started there.
