Today the nation joins the rest of the continent to celebrate Africa Day. It marks the 57th year since the birth of the African Union.
In his remarks, His Excellency the President of Zimbabwe, Cde ED Mnangagwa urged Africans to be proud of their continent and their identity, to be firm of their heritage.
“Its a call for Africa to engage sustainable development and peace”, he said.
He added that whilst celebrating Africa Day we should remember the heroes and heroines who sacrificed their lives in the liberation struggle from colonial rule.
This year’s theme is Silencing the guns and creating conducive conditions for African development and intensifying the fight against the COVID 19 pandemic.
