MALL OF ZIMBABWE - Zimbabwe's US$100 Million Shopping Center in Luxury Borrowdale Harare

Acting President Joice Mujuru yesterday commissioned the construction of a multi-million dollar shopping complex, the Mall of Zimbabwe Millennium Park, in Borrowdale.
The project which is worth US$100 million is a partnership between the City of Harare and three investors - Augur Investments, McCormick Property Development and West Group.

Speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony, VP Mujuru said the shopping mall would decongest the city centre.
She urged foreign investors to grab opportunities presented by Government.
"If contemporary planning and designs are strategically executed, this may proffer a solution to the challenges pertaining to the interaction and interconnection between and among people in their places of residence, workplace, shopping areas, places of relaxation and worship and above all how they access this range of service in a convenient manner."

VP Mujuru said the project was important as it would create more than 1 000 jobs during construction and more as businesses start operations at the mall.
McCormick Property Development managing director Mr Jason McCormick described Zimbabwe as a safe investment destination.

"I have to admit that when we first arrived in Harare last year for the first time in a decade, we were highly skeptical of whether Zimbabwe was ready for a development of the nature that we as a company were looking to develop. I have to admit that we were absolutely dumbstruck with what we found within a kilometre of the airport."

He said the bad image presented by the Western media had painted a bad picture of Zimbabwe.
Augur Investments representative Mr Ken Sharpe said their operations would conform to the country's indigenisation laws.
"Yes, we have indigenisation and it is not land grab. The problem is that we have a media that was putting things out of context. We will comply with the Zimbabwe (laws) as enshrined in the country's Constitution but as we speak the shareholding is 50-50 between Augur Investments and McCormick Property Development," he said.

Several Cabinet ministers, senior Government officials and Harare council officials witnessed the event. The construction of the mall is expected to start in six months time and be completed within 16 months.


"Lebo M" Morake Lion King Luxury House Mansion and Lifestyle

Lebohang “Lebo M” Morake,[1] known professionally as Lebo M, is a South African composer most famous for arranging and performing music for theLion King movies and stage productions. He was recommended to Disney by Hans Zimmer, the score composer of The Lion King, and was later hired to form and conduct the African choir that sang for the movies. His voice is the first voice heard in the beginning of the film, singing the now famous chant (often considered synonymous with the film's image in popular culture) over the opening sequence. He also contributed to the sequel to the film's soundtrack, Rhythm of the Pride Lands, and the film's direct-to-video sequel The Lion King II: Simba's Pride.

Born May 20, 1964 in Apartheid-ridden Soweto and inspired by Nelson Mandela, he spent years working hard in the slums and then in Los Angeles in a variety of jobs, including begging and serving atMcDonald's. He was exiled from South Africa in 1979, but returned 20 years later. He lives with his family in Johannesburg and Los Angeles. He founded the Lebo M Foundation and Till Dawn Entertainment.


On 5 March 2005, Lebo M said in his acceptance speech at the Naledi Theatre Awards that he was upset at being seated at the back row of the function and that the theatre industry did not recognise black people.
“I found it unfortunate that I produced the biggest show in South Africa and am in the last row. I feel insulted. I got invited to the Oscars and I have a Grammy,” Lebo M said in his acceptance speech. The response attained was one of uncertainty, as much of the audience accepted that he was joking until he informed them that he was not.
The comments were not well met. Nicola Danby, CEO of Business and Arts South Africa, said: “His timing was not fantastic. The fact that he opened a real grievance with a whine about where he was sitting trivialised his comments."
It was argued that Lebo M did have a seat reserved for him in the front row, and that he failed to arrive early and was seated at the back as not to disrupt the performance.
