The esteemed preacher passed away recently while receiving medical treatment at a private hospital in Harare. He was 75 years old at the time of his death. Widely known for his amiable nature, Kamupira had earned great respect for his compassionate guidance throughout his career.

In his eulogy, Chamisa took the opportunity to address Vice President Constantino Chiwenga’s recent remarks, where he expressed doubt over Chamisa’s ability to assume the presidency. The opposition leader referred to a saying from his childhood in Gutu, noting that when people claim something is impossible, it often indicates that it has already happened. He drew parallels, suggesting that when individuals assert that someone cannot be a leader, it often signifies their inherent leadership qualities.
