Former Vice President Joice Mujuru and MDC leader Nelson Chamisa were among those who thronged to the home of the late musician Oliver Mtukudzi to pay last respects.
Chamisa said Mtukudzi is not a hero because he is dead but he was always a hero.
“That the people’s legend, Oliver Mtukudzi is a People’s hero is beyond deliberation.” Chamisa said. “For such a plain fact, we mere mortals can only acknowledge as we all hereby do. That he is a hero is not because he has passed on but because he always was, even before his final rest.”
“Rest in Peace Oliver Mtukudzi. Your songs touched millions not only in Zimbabwe but around the world. We mourn your untimely death and also celebrate your life achievement. A true son of the soil Samanyanga. I send my deepest condolences to the Mtukudzi family.” Mujuru wrote on Twitter.
