A composite view of Pachanza Keep site taken from the main road heading towards Mukumbura and looking South-East.
In the foreground is the soccer field used by the Keep staff from time to time to play a game. The building, outside
the Keep on the right, was the new clinic which had just been built.

For those who are not familiar with the Keep concept, basically it was an old fashioned fort consisting of four
earth walls forming a square and inside which the camp was located.  On each corner was located a
sand-bagged bunker which would provide shelter and a firing positions in the event of an attack.
