Museum of African Liberation construction in progress

In 2021, President Emmerson Mnangagwa led the groundbreaking ceremony for the Museum of African Liberation project.

Many businesses were displaced from Liberation City to make room for the museum. Others, like businessman Phillip Chiyangwa, were compensated for a piece of land they had previously owned.

Following the recent Independent tour of Liberation City, Instak spokesperson Joseph Nkani revealed that the area’s past as a gold mining site was not in dispute. 

Nkana stated that those who showed they had lease agreements with the local authority were duly notified of the project and were duly compensated.

Westview Baptist Church, Ngoda Granite, ZimStrong, and Kubatana Cooperative are some of the entities that were relocated from the site. The above-mentioned entities are said to have been compensated.

Nkana added that among the beneficiaries of compensation are various traders with separate names. The traders are administered under Kubatana Cooperative. He stressed that financial compensation has also been provided to them. Their legal advisers can confirm the agreement.

Nkana stated to the Independent that Chiyangwa had also received compensation for the 5.5 ha of land he owned nearby in order to make room for the Liberation City project. The project will house the African Museum.

The Liberation City is planned to have a wide range of recreational facilities. These will make it the perfect destination for visitors looking for entertainment.

According to Nkana, the 101 hectares of land known as the Liberation City, will be bordered by Samora Machel, Golden Quarry, and Kirkman. Liberty City will feature a variety of commercial, entertainment, and recreational facilities.

Instak ambition with the Museum of African Liberation

Flags from every African country fly leisurely in the sky above the museum site. Instak is pushing ahead with plans to make it a major tourist destination. Additionally, space has been set aside at the museum to display military weaponry that has been decommissioned.

Paul Mavhima, minister of public service, labor, and social welfare, said the National Social Security Authority and Instak are building a mall that will provide a shopping experience in a safe, congenial environment.

The Liberation City will also include a luxurious hotel. It also has a high-end golf course, and a skyrail linking the site to the National Heroes Acre will be constructed.

The aim of the Museum of African Liberation is to preserve African history.  It also aims to celebrate the continent’s triumphant fight against colonialism.

The project administrators, Instak, are a trust with a seven-person board of trustees under the leadership of Ambassador Simbi Mubako.
