Bhebhe Vokwatumbare has for long been used as a form of identity; identifying people who belong to that totem with a unique social, economic, or historical background and past. It was thus a common unifying factor which bound together individuals, families and clans. Totems in Zimbabwe are not a thing of the past despite the changes that have come with time, people are still identified by their respective totems.
Tumbare wejira jena,
VaChilayilo chakanye ishomwe,
Bwana bwomuRozvi bwaitsva muchoto.
