The African ‘Big Apple’?
Well, Harare may not be anything like New York City, but a commonality is that they both under cities that ‘never sleep’, one more literal than the other. While the nightlife of NYC prompts the famous phrase, Harare pays homage to a Shona chief named Ne-Harawa. It is said that the name means “He who doesn’t sleep”. How’s about that New York!
The ‘Former’ Harare
Harare wasn’t always called Harare. Back in the colonial 1800, the city was named Fort Salisbury. Under this rule, the city was commemorating British Prime Minister Lord Salisbury. The Zimbabwean government retailed the name Harare in 1980.
