Zimbabwe government government has revealed the 3D concept design for Mbuya Nehanda’s Statue which will be erected at Corner Samora Machel and Julius Nyerere in the capital Harare.
Zimbabwe secretary for Information Nick Mangwana says the government’s aim is to have Mbuya Nehanda’s Statue fully erected by Heroes Day.
