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.
