My name is Manuel Maduapera, a Zimbabwean working in Saudi Arabia. One day when I was surfing the internet I came across a story that you published about an terrible fire incident that took place in Manica province. What really captured my attention was the sadness of the story and the surname of the lady who unfortunately passed on. She shares a surname with me and I found that to be some amazing coincidence. For years, I have tried to find anyone who shares the same Maduapera surname to no avail. For years my family and I have been trying to find out if we can locate our extended family members in Malawi and Mozambique. This unfortunately has come to nothing to date. I am therefore writing to you to kindly ask you to hook me up with any of the Maduapera’s from Manica. Maybe, by God’s grace my family might be able to find our long lost relatives.
My father, Harrison Maduapera, left Malawi in the early 1960s, with his nephew, Dickson Dube, who was from Mozambique. My father stayed in Zimbabwe and after the 1970’s he lost contact with most of his family. My family did not have the privilege to visit them or know exactly where they were staying. My father passed away in 1985, and since then we have been trying to locate members of his family. My father’s mother’s name was Toya. When he left for Zimbabwe, he left behind a son called Boy. That is basically his life story. With that little information, I am hoping that one day I will be able to locate my relatives.
Below is a rough English internet translation of your article. I do not speak Portuguese, so I did this just to understand what the story was about.
By John Chekwa September 9, 2011 At least one person dies and another 100 are homeless because of uncontrolled fires recorded in Saturday, day September 03, 2011, in the area of Nvulamite, put Administrative Chuala-Honde, district of Barue Plateau On Its Way Down, central province of Manica.
As queimadas descontroladas ceifaram a vida duma anciã de cerca de 65 anos de idade que em vida respondia pelo nome de Laquina Maduapera e mais de outras 100 pessoas correspondendo a 13 agregados familiares ficaram desgraçadas.
The burnings uncontrolled claimed the life of an old lady of about 65 years of age, who in life responded by the name of Laquina Maduapera and most of the other 100 people representing 13 households were deplorable. According to the community leader Joanete Collar until then, nothing is known about the author of that action more Collar, promises to work together on the police to locate the evildoer and at this moment, you are making a survey to determine final data of the families involved.
I would be very grateful for your response.
