Hlatywayo Nungu 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.
Ndizvo zvinoita kuti tifire pano,
Takauya kuzokonza babayo.
Mwaona kuti vantu vakatetepa.
Mwaita vari Serere Burauta,
Mwashuma vari Dimire,
Musatifura baba woye,
Tikafira pano ngenyi.
