How it works:
- This was perpetuated by an infamous gallery owner Tapiwa Chiadzwa near Victoria Falls who has since been arrested.
- There are tourists who buy sculptures in the area, and who have Tapiwa’s company (Southern Africa Gallery) ship these back to their home country. Tapiwa did not do so.
Places to beware:
- Victoria Falls: other examples: e.g. MEBS Global Logistix Zimbabwe (PTY) LTD; Ship A Lot Freight
What to do:
- Engage a reputable shop, dealer or shipper.
