A baobab that once housed a flush toilet, the Mubuyu Toilet, is one of Katima Mulilo’s attractions and a legacy of Major Leslie French Wade Trollope. Trollope served as magistrate and ‘native’ commissioner in what was then known as the East Caprivi Zipfel from 1939 to 1945 and from 1947 to 1952. He installed a porcelain pan and flushing system in the hollow stem of a baobab that stood in the grounds of his residence. He died in 1965 and was buried under a Jackal-berry tree on the town’s outskirts. Photo: Willie Olivier
