Revamping of Victoria Falls’ dysfunctional public swimming pool is almost complete and it looks like it would be ready to use before the 15th edition of the rebranded Zimbabwe National Youth Games in August. Hwange and Victoria Falls would be the focal point for the Youth Games, which will run from August 17-27.
Victoria Falls and Hwange are set to provide facilities for most of the 22 disciplines. Tourism and Hospitality Minister Walter Mzembi toured the swimming pool facility with the steering committee yesterday. He said, “I came here to assess progress because UNWTO want to come and commission the facility in July. We chose to develop the discussed pool as a way to thank the people of Victoria Falls by giving them a facility for their children.” He added, “From what we see and what we have been told, it will be ready for the coming youth games.”
The Chairperson of the steering committee Olga Mutamba said that final touches are now being carried on the facility.
