December 4, 1937. Mukobela's village (4 miles west of Namwala), N. Rhodesia: A large village of the Ba Ila people on the Kafue River. This village has about 2000 inhabitants and has nearly a thousand huts. It is constructed in the form of a circle with the entrance on the down-wind side so that the cattle (5000!) when they come in shall not bury the place under dust. The kitchens are on the outside of the ring, then the dwelling huts, and a stockade, and around the inner edge of the big circle are a series of cattle kraals. The small circle in the middle is the chief's stockade. 4300 feet. 07:45.
