Minister of Tourism Charles Banda has disclosed that a team of experts will travel to London early next year to carry negotiations on the need to return the SKULL of Broken Hill man to Zambia.
Dr Banda says currently efforts to have the skull retrieved from the Natural History Museum in the UK, has proved futile.
He says the Ministry of Tourism has involved UNESCO and is awaiting a response following the letter that was written to them months ago.
Dr Banda however told ZNBC News in an interview that his Ministry will do everything possible to bring back the skull to its rightful place.
And, National Museum’s Board Director General Flexon Mizinga said that bringing back the skull will grow the number of tourists and researchers from all over the world who want to know more about the origin of man.
Mr. Mizinga disclosed that the skull is significant because it connects Zambians to their ancestors.
