Mugabe’s former home at Empandeni Mission set to be turned into museum

Deputy Minister of Home Affair Obedingwa Mguni revealed that President Robert Mugabe’s home during his teaching days at Empandeni Mission in Mangwe District, Matebeleland South Province will soon be transformed into a museum.

Said Mguni:

Last year I proposed that the house that President Mugabe stayed in during his teaching days at Empandeni Mission be turned into a museum. I said, plans were afoot to turn the house into a museum as it illustrates the President’s life both as a teacher and a revolutionary. My words still stand. The Empandeni house holds a lot of aura as it once accommodated the great luminary. We have had successful meetings with the Empandeni Mission Roman Catholic priests, councillors and headmaster. We agreed that the school authorities would write a letter requesting that the house be turned into a heritage site directing it to the Minister of Rural Development, Preservation and Promotion of Culture and Heritage Abednico Ncube. Once Minister Ncube approves the letter, the plan would have been completed.

Mguni said that the house will be a tourist attraction and they have cleared the Plumtree to Empandeni Mission road in preparation.
