THE SEVEN HEROES BATTLE SITE AND FIELD MUSEUM

 

This memorial shrine marks the place where the gallant Seven
Heroes of the 28 th April 1966 Battle of Chinhoyi perished in a
fiery military contact with the Rhodesian Forces. This Battle
signaled the beginning of the armed struggle, the Second
Chimurenga/Umvukela that brought Independence to
Zimbabwe on 18 th April 1980. The monument and field museum
is being developed in memory of Christopher Chatambudza,
David Guzuzu, Godwin Manyerenyere, Arthur Maramba,
Godfrey Dube, Chubby Sawana (Savanhu), and Simon
Nyandoro for their immense contribution to the liberation and
emancipation of the people of Zimbabwe from colonial
bondage. Once completed, the information stations around the
monument will chronicle the 1966 Battle and are all named in
memory of the Seven.
