Divine Word Missionaries in Zimbabwe

Fr. Edson Mlambo Tshuma SVD

Missionary Profile

Edson is a 42-year-old Zimbabwean missionary. He comes from the city of Bulawayo, from a non-Catholic family. As a child he was inspired by his friends to get baptized in the Catholic Church.

After joining the missionaries, he did his formation in Zambia, Ghana, and Kenya, and was ordained in 2012. His first mission was Dlamini.

Currently he works in our rural mission of Gomoza where he enjoys a bit of farming and a lot of pastoral work with local community. His heart burns for justice for poor and oppressed, for weak and neglected. He is also the director of Biblical Apostolate for Hwange Diocese.
