News of the South HARARE – The Zimbabwe Tourism Authority (ZTA) has once again postponed the much anticipated Harare International Carnival which was scheduled to run from 15 to 20 October 2018 with government still trying to contain the cholera outbreak that wreak havoc in the country.
In a statement released yesterday ZTA said considerations to government efforts to contain the cholera outbreak made them postpone the event.
“The Zimbabwe Tourism Authority, having given serious consideration to all the efforts being employed to contain the spread of cholera, has decided to adhere to the call by Health Authorities to curtail events that draw huge crowds.
“It is in light of this Health consideration that the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority has had to postpone the popular Harare International Carnival that was scheduled to run from 15 to 20 October 2018,” read part of the statement.
The postponement of the carnival has left citizens who had been waiting for the event in doubt as to whether the event will take place this year after it was postponed again in July.
Last month ZTA Chief Executive Dr Karikoga Kaseke seemed quite confident in a press briefing announcing the Carnival dates and dismissed possibilities of the cholera outbreak affecting the event.0
