The Minister of Sport, Arts and Recreation, Kazembe Kazembe has toured different arts centres in Zimbabwe to get more appreciation of the arts industry.

This Tuesday was a busy schedule for Minister Kazembe as he toured two arts centres before meeting with various visual artists at Chitungwiza Arts Centre.

His first pot of call was at Dominic Benhura’s sculpture garden where he met a number of artists in the sculpturing industry.

For Benhura, the tour is important as it brings artists closer to their minister.

At Chitungwiza Arts Centre, artists posed questions to the new minister trying to find out how they can get government support.

In response, Minister Kazembe informed the artists that he was now operating on a 100-day performance target, adding that he is still trying to come up with solutions to some of the challenges facing artists in Zimbabwe.
