A TEAM from the Southern African Development Community in Zimbabwe to check on preparations for the August SADC summit yesterday toured the Liberation City housing the Museum of African Liberation, one of the sites that will be visited by delegates.

The preparatory mission led by the Deputy Executive Secretary for Corporate Affairs, Dr Judith Kateera, has appreciated the ongoing works at the site saying the initiative for the Museum “is great”.

“This is a great project which I would really like to encourage all member states and institutions like schools, universities to visit because it is going to be an information hub on our heritage and history. I would really want to urge and encourage all member states who are going to come that they also bring in that historical information which tells the true story of their countries,” she said.

Instak chief executive Ambassador Kwame Muzawazi said it was a great honour to receive the SADC delegation as part of preparations to the SADC summit that will be hosted by Zimbabwe.

“So SADC came to inspect the facilities and see what is in store, but it has been very much impressed,” he said.

The Museum of African Liberation is situated on a 103-hectare site known as Liberation City, whose construction has already started.

Liberation City is just 7km from Harare city centre, along the busy trunk road Samora Machel Avenue, aptly named after Mozambique’s founding father, the late Cde Samora Machel.

It will house the museum as the main attraction and will include a 5-star hotel, an amusement park, theme park, animal park, examples of national culture including a heritage village among many recreational facilities.

The Liberation City is projected to be a family friendly attraction for both local, regional and international tourists who will enjoy history, heritage, recreational, commercial and amusement facilities to be established at the site.
