Telecel Zimbabwe has lit up the Victoria Falls bridge between Zimbabwe and Zambia as part of its contribution to the UN World Tourism Organisation General Assembly.
The bridge illumination cost Telecel around USD 100 000, providing up to 1.8 million colour options. Telecel’s sponsorship of the bridge illumination is for 75 000 hours, or 15 years.
The two presidents lit the Victoria Falls Bridge while clasping each other’s hands.
“Your decision to hold this important global event at this venue inspires us,” President Mugabe told Dr Rifai. “We expect it to leave an indelible mark on our memories and that it be part of our generational legacy, marking a clear turning point in the tourism fortunes of our two countries, of our region and indeed of our continent of Africa.”
He said the hosting of the UNWTO at one of the seven natural wonders of the World was also a recognition that it was a safe and secure destination.
We recently received a few photos of the Victoria Falls Bridge from its opening night and would like to share them with you.
