20TH ANNIVERSARY JOSHUA NKOMO DAY

The 20th Anniversary Joshua Nkomo Day Commemorations organised and hosted by the Joshua Nkomo Legacy Restoration Project Trust (JNLRPT) dubbed, The Legacy Walk and Umdala Dance was held today in White city stadium, Bulawayo running under the theme: ‘I am because you are’.

In 2018 the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority partnered with the Trust in launching “The Joshua Nkomo Tourism Heritage Trails”, as it is its role to identify and develop tourism products and these Heritage and Tourism Trails are routes that seek to take one on a historic journey around a particular event or a person.

“The Joshua Nkomo Heritage Trails seek to document and provide a narrative that will enhance our rich history as a nation.” Said the Acting Chief Executive of Zimbabwe Tourism Authority Mrs. Rita. Likukuma

Mrs Likukuma also indicated that, “Heritage tourism contributes more that 40% to world tourism arrivals. We therefore must position our destination properly in order to tap into this market. We cannot afford to continue to be left out on a portion of this ready market, when we have so much to offer.”

The Acting Chief Executive said their offices are open to partners who wish to come on board and help develop this important tourism product.
