The History and Culture of the Babirwa of Botswana, South Africa & Zimbabwe

Pathisa Nyathi



The colonial project in Southern Africa did not consider ethnic groups and making sure the boundaries did not result in such related groups belonging to different territories. This was particularly the case with the Babirwa who found themselves belonging to three territories namely Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe. Initially cultural ties were maintained between the related groups. For example, the border between Botswana and Zimbabwe became a security zone when the war of liberation intensified in the last half of the 1970s.
