@BigBloom: The question is about Great Zimbabwe, a tourist attraction and you are rambling about social unrest? How would you like it if somebody asks “What is the Niagara Falls?”, then I give them an answer such as this “The USA is a place where there is a lot of random gun shootings in schools and public places”?
All countries have their own social problems. Show me a country where there are no social problems. Why do you have to exaggerate and spread falsehoods? Maybe you are one of the people who lost their farms in the 2000 Land Revolution. For your information, Zimbabwe has the lowest crime rate in the SADC region. It is safer than Rio De Janeiro, South Africa, New York and most capitals of the world. You will not see violent crimes that are so typical in the USA and South Africa. They are a rarity here in Zim. It is also a country with the highest number of educated people in Africa, with over a 98 percent literacy rate and over 75 percent of students completing their secondary level education.
Bill Gates, Roman Abramovich (Russian billionaire) and Donald Trump’s sons have visited this beautiful country, so your attempt to paint a dark picture about this country is pathetic.
@Hangugeo112: The Khoisan never built stone houses or any permanent structures. By nature, they are nomadic hunter-gatherers who lived in caves. Just go to Botswana and Namibia, and you will see the Khoisan living as they did centuries ago. Great Zimbabwe was built by the Shona people and King Munhumutapa lived there, trading with the Portuguese. Houses of stones were made for royalty while the villagers lived in mud huts.
Archaeological excavations have unearthed remnants of Shona pottery and implements around Great Zimbabwe. Early European adventurers and researchers who explored the area tried to destroy this evidence and instead searched for clues to Eastern civilizations which they failed to find. A lot of destruction was done by these prejudiced researchers in their vain attempt to link Great Zimbabwe with the Queen of Sheba.
