The premier of the Chinhoyi 7 movie which is viewed as an important memoir of the liberation struggle attracted more than 700 people at a local movie house in the capital last night.

The movie took more than six years of production.

The Chinhoyi 7 movie is based on true events which occurred during the liberation struggle.

Ministry of Defence Permanent Secretary Mr Martin Rushwaya who was guest of honour at the ceremony to mark the premier of the Chinhoyi 7said the movie is aimed at educating the young generation on the history of the liberation struggle especially the sacrifices made by those who participated in the struggle.

He commended the brains behind the production of the movie for a thorough research which has managed to capture all the important events.

The movie which is full of imagination brings the memories of the liberation struggle to those who witnessed it or participated.

It has thrilled all age groups and it managed to captivate racial discrimination and suffering that forced Zimbabweans to join in the fight against colonialism. 

Zimbabwe Defence Forces Commander General Philip Valerio Sibanda and his wife, the Director General Mr Isaac Moyo, representatives from the uniformed forces, and war veterans among others were part of the first group after the President Cde Emmerson Mnangagwa to be reminded of the reminiscent memoirs of the liberation struggle.
