HARARE Black Rees Odhiambo Jersey , Sept. 22 (Xinhua) -- Harare International Airport will be renamed after President Robert Mugabe with effect from Nov. 2017, a Cabinet minister has said.
Transport and Infrastructure Development Minister Joram Gumbo told state media that the airport will be renamed Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport after the International Civil Aviation Organization approved the proposed change of names.
"The International Civil Aviation Organization has approved the change of name. The process has started and by end of November we will have renamed it," Gumbo said.
This will be the second time in post-independent Zimbabwe that an airport has been named after a person Black Jarran Reed Jersey , the first one being Bulawayo Airport which was upgraded from domestic to international and renamed Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo International Airport after the late Vice President Joshua Nkomo.
The only other public airport bearing the name of a person is the Mount Hampden Airstrip.
The then Rhodesian government changed its name to Charles Prince Airport in 1978 after Charles Hilton Prince who had worked there between 1958 and 1973 as Air Traffic Controller and airport manager.
Many roads in major urban centers have been named after Mugabe, with even an orphanage at a mission school in Manicaland bearing his name.
Gumbo said the ruling Zanu-PF party had on numerous occasions requested the renaming of the airport after him.
"We think it is a small recognition by the people of Zimbabwe to name the Harare International Airport as the Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport. It is something small to recognize his contribution.
"He is a peacemaker. He is an icon for Africa," Gumbo said.

RIO DE JANEIRO， Aug. 16 (Xinhua) -- Tributes have poured in for former FIFA president Joao Havelange， who died on Tuesday aged 100.
The Samaritano Hospital in Rio de Janeiro confirmed Havelange died of complications resulting from a lung infection.
A former Olympic swimmer， Havelange headed FIFA from 1974 to 1998. He also served as an International Olympic Committee (IOC) member from 1963 to 2011.
Under his leadership FIFA grew from a small organization with a handful of employees to a multibillion-dollar sporting and global brand.
His career was tainted by allegations of corruption， including claims he received kickbacks from FIFA marketing contracts.
Brazil's interim president Michel Temer said in a statement that sport had lost one of its "most expressive leaders".
"Joao Havelange dedicated himself wholeheartedly to the development of sport， principally football，" Temer said. "I extend my solidarity to his family and friends at this difficult time."

Under his FIFA presidency， the World Cup expanded from 16 to 32 teams. He was credited for ushering in the era of major sponsorship deals and television broadcasting rights that turned football into a multibillion-dollar global industry.
