In pictures: Africa's World War II veterans
Long journey

Chikukwa was prompted to put on the exhibition after seeing an earlier exhibition on the war, which he found lacking: "Africans were not being represented for their contribution to the mother empire," he says.

He travelled to Tanzania and Zambia, as well as within his own country, to interview the surviving elderly veterans.

His travels included a 30km mountain hike to the village home of veteran Tarambwa Kutsanza in Zimbabwe’s Eastern Highlands.
