What Does Zimbabwe Look Like? Part IV: Manicaland

Hello everyone!

Part IV of my series What Does Zimbabwe Look Like, are photographs taken in Manicaland.

Last weekend was my Tete’s memorial service and kugoverwa kwe nhaka (inheritance allocated to family).¬† I learned a lot about Manica traditions, especially how difficult it can be to keep a family together after the matriarch passes away.¬†African women hold together everything, working and building quietly yet seldom given recognition until they are gone.

Manicaland Province is stunning. From the great agricultural estates to the mountain ranges in Nyanga, it truly is a sight to behold. My Zimbabwe is beautiful.
