The dark interior of Chirorodziva, also known as the Chinhoyi Caves. In his description of hosho, Sekuru Chigamba compares the hosho to a small candle lighting the way for other members of the ensemble, much as candles were used to illuminate Chirorodziva prior to the installation of electrical lighting in certain parts of the caves.
After being captured by the British, Sekuru Chigamba’s ancestors briefly lived at Chirorodziva before returning to Guruve. Chirorodziva has long been a sacred site, although it is currently publicly accessible as a National Park.
