NyamiNyami Festival brought Kariba to a standstill on Saturday as people from all walks of life converged at the Lake Harvest Harbour for an event expected to anchor efforts to revive tourism in the resort town. The festival which was once hosted by the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority (ZTA) had been put on hold because of a poor financial resource base as sponsorship seeking efforts increasingly futile. However, after realizing the need to revive tourist activity in Kariba through MICE tourism, the ZTA and media conglomerate Zimpapers through Nyaminyami FM partnered to bring back the much celebrated festival.
