On October 28, 2023, New China TV posted on its YouTube channel a report about Zimbabwe's new parliament building, which was built by China.

Onscreen text: "A new parliament building constructed and funded by China through a grant was handed over to Zimbabwe on Thursday."

Tafara Mugwara: "China officially handed over to the Zimbabwean government this magnificent new parliament building sitting on top of a hill. The imposing structure, with a combined floor space of 33,000 square meters, was constructed and funded by the Chinese government through a grant. The design of the state-of-the-art structure was inspired by the Great Zimbabwe, a medieval city known for its circular walls and iconic conical tower."


Emmerson Mnangagwa: "The new parliament building, which stands as one of the most magnificent and modern buildings in our country, signifies the excellent relations that exist between Zimbabwe and the People's Republic of China. The attention to detail and high standards of workmanship exhibited in this project are indeed commendable."
