Peace Caravan to Continue Promoting Peace in Zimbabwe | VOA

A local civil society organization, Artists for Democracy Trust in Zimbabwe, says its peace-building project, dubbed the Peace Caravan, will continue to target troubled communities in a bid to stop politically-motivated violence.

The project, launched ahead of the July 31 national elections, will now become a permanent feature as artists use musical shows and exhibitions to promote peace.

Prompted by disturbing violent scenes in past elections in the country, Artists for Democracy Trust in Zimbabwe mooted an idea that saw 25 popular musicians such as Jah Prayzah, Suluman Chimbetu, Weutonga and the late Chiwoniso Maraira getting together to promote peace in various communities ahead of the disputed July elections.
