Yesterday while giving a speech in the Southern Capital where he went to manage the unveiling of the Harry Nkumbula statue at Choma Museums, Hon. Banda stated that the Museum had taken extra steps to contribute a gallery to show symbols of peace in the country.
The Minister mentioned that the statue was in recognition of Mr. Nkumbula’s wish to support peace and national harmony and at the same time he never overlooked at any kind of oppression and racial discrimination perpetrated by the British.
Honourable Banda explained Zambia is better known as haven of peace. Consequently, it was crucial that for museums to endorse virtues that encourage peace along with national unity so that the virtues stays and turn out to part of the country’s identity.
He stated Tourism and Arts can never flourish in a violent prone country and that visitors only can travel to see the tourist’s attractions, if peace sustains.
And Ompie Nkumbula-Lieventhal, the oldest surviving daughter of Nkumbula expressed thanks to the Museum for adding her father’s statue to the museum.
