Inhambe, Portuguese East Africa (Mozambique), but moved to Cape Town, Cape Colony (South Africa), when he was about twelve years

old. Bernard Mizeki is revered as a hero of faith in Africa. Today Bernard Mizeki College stands close to where he lived, and the

Mangwende's kraal, above the village, is crowned with a large cross to commemorate Bernard.
