Dr. Walter Mzembi views tourism as peace, security & better social relationship

Published on : Monday, April 17, 2017

Dr. Walter MzembiOne of the prime candidates for the position of Secretary-General of the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), Dr. Walter Mzembi is now the minister of Zimbabwe Tourism and Hospitality.


He is expected to be the first African ever to head this group. The minister views tourism as a path to peace, and security that advances social relationships. To quote Mzembi, ‘We need to be creative about the entire concept of Membership to attract new participants. I am suggesting a new special category that will engage cities, states and regional organizations.


How do you ignore the fact that cities are the oldest and most stable form of social organization – outliving Nation States, and miss them in our vision? Clearly they offer the most practical method and prospect to Membership reorganization?’

Besides, Mzembi plans to bring in countries like the USA, the UK, Canada and Australia, not associated with UNWTO for the support and cooperation. In contrast to the Trump policies, Mzembi does not believe that closing the borders and hampering the freedom of travel can protect any country and travel lovers in anyway. Rather he believes that an increase in intelligence and cooperation of security agency via information technology.


These shared data and seamless borders will profit countries and their citizens in return.
