The Harare International Carnival has been postponed again, due to the cholera outbreak, the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority has confirmed.
ZTA Chief Executive Karikoga Kaseke, in addressing journalists at an event where flamboyant businessman Genius ‘Ginimbi’ Kaseke was named Face of the Carnival for three years, said that it was unfortunate but not a good look.
From previous postponements other countries have fallen off and he cited eSwatini as one after the second postponement.
Kaseke said the effects were negative:
It is devastating to us but we are communicating with them because they know Zimbabwe has been in the media over the cholera. The effects are devastatingly negative.
Meanwhile Ginimbi says he will work to make sure that the Carnival becomes a success.
