RESIDENTS of Victoria Falls will next week be treated to a free entertainment buffet when Zimbabwean international music icon Oliver Mtukudzi plays in the town, courtesy of the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority. Dubbed “Zimbabwe Cultural Night”, the free

entertainment buffet slated for the golf course at Elephant Hills Hotel, will be held on the sidelines of the Africa Travel Association Congress scheduled for Victoria Falls from May 18-22. ZTA is urging residents of the resort town to join the more than 300 ATA participants anticipated at the convention, in celebrating Zimbabwean music and dance.

“Tuku is a cultural brand and a rare spectacle in this part of the world and we cannot make our people pay, lest we leave others out, so it will be for free.

“We want everyone to come out of their homes in Victoria Falls and enjoy the free entertainment.

“We urge people to pour out for this mega event. Tuku will be supported by Iyasa and Thandanani, a local group.

“We are also courting artistes from Zambia and Botswana to add flavour to the cultural night.

“Botswana because they are our neighbours and Zambia because we are in bed together for the United Nations World Tourism Organisation 2013 General Assembly,” said ZTA communications manager Sugar Chagonda.
