  • In a colourful ceremony in Chinamora, a Tribal Trust Land near Salisbury, Rhodesia, the new 70 year-old Chieftain of the Chinamora tribe was installed on Thursday (1 April). The ceremony was the climax of a process that had taken seven years to choose a successor to the former chief.

    During those seven years, the new Chief Chinamora had had to be accepted by the tribe’s ancestral spirits. During the long wait for the new successor to be chosen, the acting chief died.

    About 5,000 people from the Goromonzi and Chinamora areas attended the traditional installation ceremony, and throughout most of the day the crowds kept up their dancing and singing of war songs. The noise grow to a climax when Rhodesia’s Minister for Internal Affairs, Mr. jack Mussett, handed the new chieftain his red robe, his white helmet, and his badge of chieftainship.

    Also present at the ceremony were Mr. Mussett’s deputy, Mr. Ronald walker; the Secretary of State for Internal Affairs, Mr.don Yardley; the Goromonzi District commissioner, mr. Don Parkinson; the Mayor of Salisbury, Alderman douglas Tanner; and representatives of the army, police and air force. Other guests included local headmen and elders, as well as members of the council of Chiefs.

    The installation began in the morning when the new Chief was carried to a thatched shelter, where he was to sit on a reed mat for most of the ceremony. He was flanked by elders from the other two houses of chieftainship, whose presence showed they had accepted his appointment.

    In a speech to the crowd, Mr. Mussett spoke about the history and achievements of the new chief’s people, the Vasha-washa, as well as congratulating him on his appointment. The wooden trumpets, known as umuhanzi, which are played at the installation or death of a chief, were blown frequently throughout the ceremony.

    The new Chief Chinamora is the tribal leader of about 40,000 people living in an area of about 1,000 square kilometres (621.37 square miles). His Council, with three clinics, three beer-halls and eight dip tanks to control, has an annual budget of about GBP155,000.

From Chikowore

I am made to understand that Chikowore had his children and his eldest son was called Mhembere the name of his grandfather. Mhembere had many wives and children. His many sons include Mupandira, Zvomuya, Mandaza, Chisora, Makumbe, Chidziva (not sure). ย Zvomuya had two wives. Zvomuya had two sons and daughters. His sons were Mukurutangwa and Stephen (Chiuta) with their sisters Chipiringani and Sandura. The diagram below will try to explain more. Details are so scatchy but slowly filtering through.
