This comes on the backdrop of a call made by Vice President Joice Mujuru for tourism authorities in the country to organise an event similar to the on-going International Carnival de VictoriaÂ so as to market the countryâ€™s tourism sector.
Speaking on the sidelines of the carnival, the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority Chief Executive, Mr Karikoga Kaseke said Zimbabwe will in December or early next year hold a similar event.
He said a carnival is a good way of promoting unity among organisations, government and private companies.
Mr Kaseke also said the timing and date of the carnival which will be set at a time when hotel occupancy is low, is a strategy to boost hotel room occupancy during that month as delegates will be coming for the carnival.
A carnival is a festival that is characterised by celebrations and entertainment,Â withÂ performances from various musical groups, anÂ array ofÂ international food dishes, and a family fun-day among other things.
