Born in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), Zeleza was raised in Malawi, the native country of his parents. He earned his B.A. from the University of Malawi and an M.A from the University of London, where he studied African history and international relations. He holds his Ph.D. in economic history from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.
