The Zimbabwe delegation to the Seychelles carnival has made news in their home country. Their local news said: “Zimbabwe’s delegation to the Seychelles carnival, led by Vice President Joice Mujuru, is back home after a successful tour of duty, which saw the country scooping 3rd prize for International Float and Good Performance during the carnival procession. The Jerusarema Mbende dance performance charmed world leaders, locals, and tourists in the small Indian Ocean island.

In an interview, Vice President Mujuru said attending the carnival was an eye opener and a blessing considering that the country won the 3rd best prize. Cde. Mujuru challenged local tourism authorities to organize a similar event to market the country better. Tourism and Hospitality Industry Minister, Walter Mzembi, said the prize is testimony of various achievements Zimbabwe has had on the tourism front as a culmination of hard work by the nation at large.

“Zimbabwe should begin to measure happiness of the people through a new concept in tourism called Gross Domestic Happiness, GDH, which can be achieved through organizing carnivals and festivities like the Jacaranda festival or the Nyami Nyani festival in which people display and package all their achievements and accomplishments and celebrate them,” said Mzembi. RETOSA Chairperson who is also the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Tourism and Hospitality Industry, Dr. Sylvester Maunganidze, urged all SADC countries to learn from Seychelles and start putting tourism at its rightful place in the economy.

The Seychelles carnival held in the heart of the small island saw two days of live music, a carnival procession, array of international food stalls, and family fun day and all-night party.

Zimbabwe and Seychelles enjoy good relations dating back to the 80s when Seychelles used to send medical students for training to the University of Zimbabwe.
