A BRITISH national, Mr David Jones, has undertaken to correct the negative publicity Zimbabwe is receiving in the West saying the country is a paradise.
Mr Jones described Zimbabwe as "a real paradise, a jewel in the crown for Africa and heaven on earth" because of the real feeling of unspoilt nature the country possessed.
He was speaking at a function on Saturday night where the Minister of Environment and Tourism, Cde Francis Nhema, presented him with the Tourist of the Decade Award.
"For us, Zimbabwe in particular, and southern Africa in general is the eighth wonder of the world," said the 50-year old Mr Jones.
