Witness Bonjisi was born in 1975 in Mudzi, Mutoko.
Witness is the second born in a family of seven.

Witness grew up in Domboshava, Chinamhora where he achieved his
primary education. He then moved to Mabvuku, on the outskirts of Harare,
Zimbabwe and completed his secondary education.

He started sculpting in 1992 with the late Nicholas Mukomberanwa and then
with his elder brother Lameck Bonjisi. He was mainly inspired into the
sculpture world by his brother Lameck.
In 1997 he started sculpting his own pieces.

He has attended workshops in America and Switzerland and his work
can be found in galleries and private collections all over the world.
