Somabhula is a village in Midlands province in Zimbabwe. It is also the rail junction for Zimbabwe's southern links to neighboring Mozambique and South Africa. It was a major beef and mixed farming area up until the time that Robert Mugabe and Zanu-PF confiscated farmland from white farmers. It is thought to have been named after an influential Matebele chief.
