Sibonginkosi Mpofu

  • Rhodes University, PhD in Sociology


Sibonginkosi’s research focuses on sexual violence during the Gukurahundi genocide, which occurred in Zimbabwe in the 1980s. While this is a serious issue, little has been done to address the suffering of survivors, with perpetrators escaping with impunity and the issue relegated to acceptable consequences of war. She hopes this research will magnify the suffering experienced by survivors, that their trauma is finally acknowledged and efforts to redress this issue are made.
