Camilo and Che in memory

The Cuban Embassy in Zimbabwe on October 28 commemorated the 61st anniversary of the physical disappearance of Camilo Cienfuegos, and in this way the Camilo-Che ideological conference was closed. The members of the Diplomatic Mission, the Cuban Medical Brigade and a representation of the Cuban Community Resident in the country participated.

Through the reading of texts and declamations dedicated to the Hero of Yaguajay and Che, we recall two giants of our homeland history that inspire us to continue fighting for our ideals and the conquests of the Cuban Revolution. Once again the genocidal US blockade against our country and the slanders of our white coat battalion were denounced.
