Our Nation is also identified by the pride of our ancestors’ rock (cave) paintings of abaThwa (San people) scattered around the hills and mountains of Mthwakazi, especially Matopo Hills, within the Jameson line, that is the border between Mthwakazi and Mashonaland. The rock paintings are one of the first inventions of writing that was done by our ancestors in an art form in Africa. This has never been acknowledged in the history of mankind. We are simply a unique Nation inhabited by unique peoples and we must ooze pride and a strong sense of patriotism and National identity.
