The Moyo 1's named after my grandpa. Every Ndebele person has a totem, and our families totem 'Moyo' means heart.
The legacy of my grandfather pops up every now and then. Inasmuch as I am proud to be from where I am from, learning abount who he was is... difficult. In 2019 my little sister found a quote of his in a book, were he was cited as an intellectual.
This colorway is named after a Kariba Dam in Zimbabwe. The creation of the dam led to the resettlement of 57,000 Tonga people. This resettlement was largely a disaster and as Jacques Leslie (Deep Water, 2005) put it: "focused on the plight of the people displaced by Kariba Dam, and found the situation little changed since the 1970s. In his view, Kariba remains the worst dam-resettlement disaster in African history."
