ZIMBABWE - Nyika yeZimbabwe / Ilizwe leZimbabwe

Republic of Zimbabwe, is a landlocked sovereign state located in southern Africa, between the Zambezi and Limpopo Rivers. It borders South Africa to the south, Botswana to the west, Zambia to the northwest, and Mozambique to the east and northeast. The capital and largest city is Harare. A country of roughly 13 million people, Zimbabwe has 16 official languages, with EnglishShona, and Ndebele the most commonly used.

These beautiful covers got from Zimbabwe with the help of my very good friend David, during his visit in South Africa. He handed over these covers to his colleague to post from Zimbabwe , He posted the covers from Victoria Falls post office on September 09, 2016. The stamps are old and i was in doubt of accepting them, I had suggested him to affix valid stamps along with these stamps or on backside. But surprisingly, All covers came back safely without adding current stamps. Zimbabwe currency is one of the highly inflation suffered, so I believed they may considered the value in their own way. Thank You David for the big help.
