HARARE, 30 June 1992. — The new headquarters of the Agricultural Finance Corporation, Hurudza House, built at a cost of $31 million, is now complete and will be officially opened next week, a spokesman said yesterday.
Hurudza House has 16 floors and six of them would be let. Some of the facilities provided are a banking hall, modern offices and parking space doe 145 cars. Construction work began in July 1989 and was completed on schedule.
The headquarters, named in honour of Zimbabwe’s farmers, would end the migrant life that the AFC has experienced since its inception in 1971.
Initially the corporation was located in a building in Third Street and in two other blocks, the Travel Centre and the Club Chambers. In 1984, the AFC moved under one roof at Kurima House, but subsequently rent at the corner of Baker Avenue and Park Street for the new headquarters.
