ZENZO NKOBI HERITAGE PHOTO COLLECTION

Zimbabwe in the Struggle

The Zenzo Nkobi Photo Collection

As we mark over 40+ years of independence on April 18th, we join the people of Zimbabwe not only in celebrating but also in reflecting on the lives of the thousands of our fellow compatriots whose selfless sacrifice brought about independence. Our goal is to ensure that their sacrifice doesn’t go unnoticed and that everyone’s contribution regardless of the scope or political affiliation, is honored. The TGSCCC is in the process of negotiating a partnership with local universities and other relevant organizations with the aim of establishing a memorial library whose main feature will pay tribute to all the heroes of the armed struggle.

This a project proposal to hold a commemorative photo gallery exhibition at the TG Silundika Cultural Community Centre. The exhibition’s main feature will be 500 photographs (the first batch) of the thousands of images of the liberation struggle captured by the late Zenzo Nkobi during the liberation struggle. With video and multi-media programs, visitors will learn more about the history of the liberation struggle from the Zapu perspective. Thousands of the remaining Zenzo Nkobi Gallery photos will eventually be printed and stored permanently at the TG SILUNDIKA CULTURAL COMMUNITY CENTRE and accessible to ordinary citizens, research parties and historians.

Beneficiaries

Even though the people of Bulilima District are the direct beneficiary of this project, Zimbabweans in general will find connection with the war time experiences of the brave men and women who  played a part in the country’s liberation. Academics and researchers will find a wealth of material to help their research. Bulilima District will benefit directly from the local and international tourism this project will generate.

Expected Outcomes

The general key deliverable of this project is to create an enlightened society which is conscious of the sacrifices made during the war of independence; a society that is proud of its history.
