The new Zimbabwe House of Parliament was developed on an area of 50.000m2 in Mount Hampden, approximately 18km northwest of the South African country’s capital, Harare.
The contracted builders Shanghai Construction Group, have so far done an amazing job.
Upon completion, the imposing six-storey building will accommodate joint sittings of the senate and the national assembly. The two chambers will have extra facilities such as two conference centers each with a capacity to accommodate 350 people, a banquet hall capable of accommodating 1,000 people, offices for parliamentary officers, and many boardrooms for parliamentary committee sessions as well as a parking space.
The US$ 140m projects’ architectural design borrows heavily from the country’s traditional setting, city plans such as Dhlo Dhlo, and Great Zimbabwe.
Not many good news stories of development are covered with regards Zimbabwe nonetheless it looks the new dispensation government is doing its part as far as infrastructure development is concerned.
