The Samora Machel Museum in Lobatse, which was opened in April 2022, celebrates the memory of one
of Africa’s greatest freedom fighters and statesmen, while further serving as a reminder of the contributions

for Southern Africa’s liberation. The peace and freedom we enjoy as a region today are a product of
their collective struggle and sacrifice against the forces of racism, fascism, and imperialist repression.
