The totem praise poetry (Detembo) tells a story of where one belongs in our vast beautiful land. In its brevity, the poem takes you through a journey of discovering who are you, where you hail from and what your totem is famous for?
The Mhara (Impala) is a totem derived from the people in the Mhondoro Mubaira area. Their ancestry is rich in the colonial history of Zimbabwe, as one of their early ancestors Chief Mashayamombe (translated to lost cattle) participated in the early anti-imperial struggle. It is a totem that is part of Zimbabwe’s rich historical past.
Why not get yourself or your loved ones this elegantly designed wooden poetry plaque that is engraved and luxuriously varnished to pay homage to the rich Mhara Chikonamombe clan, passed down through the generations by those who came before us and helped shape who we are as a people.
