Liberation Park project ideal for special economic zone status

By Admire Huni

AS the Second Republic forges ahead with its economic revival agenda underpinned by vision 2030, calls have been made for the Liberation Park Project to be considered for special economic zone status.

Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet Dr Misheck Sibanda, who toured the Museum of African Liberation site in Harare this Wednesday, says the Liberation Park project presents vast economic opportunities for the country.

“I think there is ample opportunity for all people who want to come in. As we were coming, we agreed that there is a place where you can apply the special economic zone philosophy because it offers everything within that scope for investment for locals and internationally. It is not discriminatory, it is also for the community and all aspects of people because it is going to be a centre for tourism also entertainment not only for the locals but for visitors,” he said.

The project resonates well with the objectives of the National Development Strategy One.

“This is one major pillar in the infrastructural development and indeed investment so there is an opportunity for all investors who want to count themselves in future to say we were there when the Museum of African Liberation Project was done not only for the benefit of Zimbabwe but Africa and the entire world.”

The Liberation Park will be made up of the Museum of African Liberation, a five-star hotel, shopping mall, upmarket residential properties, a zoological facility and the Zimbabwe Defence Forces permanent exhibition park.
