The multi-million dollar project is set to be completed by the end of November this year and will see the 6400 seater Harare Hippodrome become the largest conference centre in the country.
The Rainbow Towers (HICC) Conference Centre in Harare has a capacity of 4500, while the Harare City Sports Centre seats 4000.
President Emmerson Mnangagwa and Vice President Constantino Chiwenga officiated at the ground breaking ceremony last week. It also comes a few weeks after Mnangagwa appointed Prophet Angel Presidential Envoy and Ambassador to the Americas and Europe.
Mnangagwa paid tribute to Angel, his wife Beverly and their financial partners for the investment.

“Government continues to accelerate the implementation and completion of projects meant to precipitate tourism growth. Key flagships such as the opening of tourism corridors in Matabeleland North, Masvingo and Mashonaland Central provinces, among others, are on course,” he said.
