Chamakuwende" is the name of a person . A man was always seen travelling around Zimbabwe with a scotch cart driven by two donkeys. This man was singing his only one song called: "Chemutengure". And since people didn't know where he was goning or coming from they just called him "Chemutengure". This song is well known all over Zimbabwe. But now I thought of a very nice new name for it: "Chamakuwende".
