Parliament of Zimbabwe
parliament of zimbabweThe Parliament was originally built as a hotel in 1895, but was soon commandeered for army barracks. It has undergone several renovations since and is now used by the senate and legislative assembly. It's not normally open to the public, but requests to sit in the gallery during the fiery political debates can be arranged by ringing the Chief Information Officer. You may also be lucky enough to join a free weekly tour.

Heroes' Acre

The Government of Zimbabwe started work on the Heroes Acre in September 12 1981, one year after Independence in Zimbabwe. The work was undertaken by the Government to commemorate those who fell in the struggle for national liberation and the contemporary and future sons and daughters of Zimbabwe whose dedication and commitment to the nation justify their burial at this sacred spot.
