    This is a wonderful piece of art demonstrated by the minority people of Binga. They have been denied access to democracy, air their views, right to participate in the development of their life. It is our sincere hope that the current government of national unity will bring this space to these people so that they too can participate in the development of their community and most importantly their skills, life etc. The struggle is certain but victory is coming! Viva !

    I salute the BaTonga people of Northen Zimbabwe. this is a tribe of people who respect their culture and Binga on its own is pregnant with tourist atraction activities although the locals are not benefiting from the income. Having worked ther for almost five years in the rural Binga,i learnt a lot from them and up to this day i stil salute them and would like to associate myself with these people.Who ever is organising this event pliz look forward and live to your vision. Leza akulongezye loko!
