My name is Fungayi Chikowore, born in a village called Chikowore under the Chief Musana (Mukuwapasi, Madyirapazhe) in the district of Bindura. Currently this area is now known as Bindura South in Zimbabwe. I was privileged enough to have grown up partly in the village and Harare, specifically Glen Norah B. When I grew up it was still a virgin land, with everything in abundance. . Village life was so good and we were all very much a close knit family with one leader who was my grandfather, Stephen Chirimuuta Chikowore. My father is George Zvomuya Chikowore. My grand father was a great man by all standards and he forever represents all that I remember about us as a people before we lost our god given norms. In the village those days the Spirit Mediums ruled and everything was guided by them. As a people we are part of the VaShawasha Clan. Our great grandfather we claim Chinamora chieftainship through is Wafanenhombo who was Chinamaringa’s brother. Wafanenhombo had two sons Chikowore and Charumbira. I am from the Chikowore family. As I said, I grew up enjoying abundance of what nature provided but this is no more!! Sad that my children can not enjoy what I enjoyed, such is evolution. I am now hoping to write a story about where Chidziva left and try to fill in the jigsaw! We are currently sub-chiefs in the are of Musana which is under Chief Musana of the madyirapazhe, mukuwapasi people. We preside from Nyava to Denda/Msana Bazaar. we enjoy very good relationships with the Vagumbo people resident in Musana.
