23 Jul 2023  |  thestandard.co.zw
Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain and the world's fourth highest, is home to fascinating facts and a rich history. It has three volcanic cones, with Kibo being the highest peak and dormant. Annually, 25,000 people attempt to summit, with two-thirds succeeding. The mountain's snow caps are rapidly diminishing, potentially being ice-free within a decade. Bernard Goosen, born with cerebral palsy, remarkably climbed Kilimanjaro using a modified wheelchair in 2003 and again in 2007.

Travelling & Touring: Mutare and Mberengwa traced to Tonga terminology?

16 Jul 2023  |  newsday.co.zw
Mutare, known as 'Kumakomoyo', is a tourism hub in Manicaland province, Zimbabwe, with attractions like Christmas Pass and Mutare Museum. The city's name and that of Mberengwa have possible Tonga origins, with 'Umtali' potentially derived from the Tonga word 'Butale' meaning 'metal'. The Tonga tribe, one of the initial Bantu settlers, is believed to have influenced the region's nomenclature. Mberengwa is associated with the Lemba tribe, who claim descent from the biblical 12 tribes and have a significant presence in the district. The article also mentions historical figures and places related to the region's heritage.

Why is Zimbabwe’s economy in a nose dive?

22 May 2019  |  TRT World
The article discusses the economic challenges faced by Zimbabweans following the country's recent elections. Nadine Moyo, a deputy headmistress in Harare, exemplifies the struggles of many as she queues for basic commodities, which have become scarce. The situation worsened after the new Minister of Finance, Professor Mthuli Ncube, introduced economic measures to address the free-falling economy, blamed on mismanagement. These measures, including a new tax and the requirement for foreign currency accounts, led to a shortage of goods and a preference for payment in USD or ZAR. The surrogate currency, bond notes, is also in short supply. Calls have been made for Zimbabwe to adopt the South African Rand and join the Southern African Customs Union. Experts and political figures suggest that dialogue and political maturity are needed to resolve the crisis. The government has temporarily lifted import bans on basic commodities to combat profiteering. Zimbabweans await Ncube's 2019 national budget with the hope of economic recovery.
