Dennis Kalili was born in 1981 married with 3 children, born in the family of 4 and he is the first-born taking care of his sibling s and his late sisters’ children.Dennis says got into this trade at the age of 20 years through his uncle who use to do carvings. He enjoys working in Mukwa because it is easy to access at any time and it sells well at Mukuni Victoria Falls curio market.“I’ve been carving for 19 years and used to sell in Zimbabwe, South Africa and Namibia as well but this business has finished because of corona.”He feels happy by being part of this work as the money will be used to finish a house for his sister’s children. “I selected the theme Ila Heads Mask because it symbolizes the Chief and the Chieftains in the Mukuni chiefdom. The sculpture reflects the aspect of tribalism characterized by peace, unity and development among the people in the chiefdom.” These were used during the traditional ceremony and reflect that we are all the same regardless of tribe or colour. “This work has come at the right time. I will sort out some family problem s and I am very happy to be part of this programme.”
