Big plans for Nyangabwe hill

Organizers of the annual Nyangabwe Hill Cultural Festival have taken a decision to turn the venue at the foot of the iconic hill into one of Francistown’s best outdoor alternatives for music festivals and corporate events.

The October 30th event won’t take place this year due to Covid-19 regulations, but the founding Director of the event Ngwisiwa Ntogwa told Voice Entertainment that they’ve come to an agreement with the local authorities such as the Town Clerk and Pelotelele Ward Committee to utilise the venue as a cultural village.

“We’ve been given the go-ahead to use the place for traditional games, workshops, training and performance stage and all-year-round businesses such as a traditional cuisine restaurant, coffee shop, cocktail bar, curio shop, and artifacts market,” he said.

Ntogwa further said the spacious venue offers an experience like no other in the second capital because of its natural state and its proximity to one of the iconic landmarks.

“It offers a solution to challenges faced by performing arts sector who struggle to find suitable venues for their gigs,” he said.

“Following the Covid-19 lockdown, our industry was the first to be closed and still remains the last to be opened; therefore we have come up with this venue to be explored by stakeholders, business community, individuals and the Covid-19 Presidential Task Force for the support of the arts sector,” Ntogwa said.

The Tjilenje Tje Ngwao front man said they invited organisations and key stakeholders for a site visit of the venue on Wednesday 15 July.
