The Zimbabwe Incident occurred a generation ago. The many kids who met a matched pair of extraterrestrials, have since grown into adults. What are they saying today, about their close encounters as the Zimbabwe UFO school children?

A very remarkable UFO visitation took place in 1994, in front of more than sixty witnesses... between the ages of five and twelve. On a playground outside their school, the children all stopped playing at the same time, to watch a large flying saucer, hovering over distant scrubland. That sight, however, was only the beginning of their nightmares.

The Ariel Primary School is located a short distance from the capital of Zimbabwe, in the rural township of Ruwa. Grades one through seven are still taught there. The close encounter took place on September 19th, three years after the school was founded, and one week after the start of the third semester. Tuition at the Ariel School is expensive, and all the students came from wealthy families. The children represented many different races, Asian and African and English. They had no exposure to the internet, little exposure to television, and no prior awareness of UFOs.

Salma Siddick was one of those 62 kids. She was eleven years old. In an interview last year, she recounted flashing lights coming from small hills nearby. There was little supervision on that playground during the mid-morning recess, because all the teachers were in a staff meeting. The only adult supervisor, a mother of one of the students at Ariel, was inside the candy concession stall. She could not see the entire playground. She could see only that part of the playground reserved for the youngest children.

The other kids crowded towards the direction of the hovering craft, stopping where the end of the playground was marked by tree trunks, where some huge Eucalyptus trees had been cut down. They later described the UFO as a silver disc. Salma had a close encounter with one of the aliens. Suddenly a small alien was standing in front of her, on the other side of the felled tree trunks. The features of its face were minimal, its expression was unchanging, and its skin reminded her of unblemished porcelain. Salma says it wore something resembling a scuba suit. Other youngsters described the suit as black, and shiny.

After the encounter, the children ran as a mob, to tell the woman at the concession stall, but she turned them away, not willing to pick up and leave with all the food and money. They ran together to interrupt the staff meeting, where they were also told to calm down and be quiet. Classes then were held as normal. However on the next day, the school switchboard was inundated with phone calls from parents, who wanted to know why their kids were so scared. Then the teachers got scared. After the police were not able to help, one of the teachers thought of consulting a well known UFO researcher from the capital, Cynthia Hind. Hind was so convinced by the witnesses, that she contacted a psychiatrist, the Harvard Professor John Mack, who soon arrived to interview the young witnesses.

Emily Trim was one of those 62 kids. Her age was eight. Speaking at a public event three years ago, she remembered how she and her friend were already at the tree log boundary of the playground, when they heard a high pitched noise, like the sound of a flute. They saw a flash, and a spacecraft. They saw two aliens heading towards them, hopping over the hills, without touching the ground. Abruptly the aliens appeared before them. One of them attempted to communicate with her, while staring into her eyes, and the message was telepathic. Emily perceived a rapid display of images in her mind... hundreds of mental pictures, perhaps thousands. She said the alien told her, "There is a good way of using technology. There is a bad way of using technology. You can do better." Different messages were relayed to different school children, but there was a common theme... to be a better caretaker of the environment on Earth.

Before any investigators arrived on site, the kids were encouraged to draw pictures of the things they had seen. The artwork was remarkably similar. They drew the alien with an oversized head and large, slanted black eyes. The mouth was only a slit. The pictures were all of a type of alien, that is now classified as a grey.
