The festival will be graced by top international and local gospel artistes, according to the organisers.

FFWPU co-chairperson Johannes Ndanga said the festival is set to bring together people from all walks of life for the sake of peace and reconciliation.

The fiesta will kick off with a workshop by Hak Ja Han Moon, who is also expected to pray for a peaceful and prosperous Zimbabwe.

“Through a celebration of arts, music and inspirational words we highlight the diversity and creative power of our human family. The purpose of the Peace and Family Festival will be to heal the wounds of the past and support the Zimbabwe government’s endeavours for peace and reconciliation,” Ndanga said.

“Solutions to our divided culture begin with the quiet revolution inside each of us.”

Ndanga said Hak Ja Han Moon is “a tireless advocate” for peace and reconciliation.

She is the founder of the Sun Hak Peace Prize and the Peace Starts with Me Movement and has supported initiatives for refugees, access to education for women and girls, food security, supporting marriage and family, and protecting the environment.

Ndanga said the festival’s pre-workshop, will also be a forum to start a discussion on the launching of the International Media Association for Peace in Zimbabwe.
