The painful national story of our liberation cannot be told without mentioning the name Rex Nhongo, a true and gallant son of the soil.
Though he died in very tragic circumstances, it is befitting that he died in the month that we celebrate and cherish the rich legacy of our national heroes.
My sincere condolences go to the Vice President, Amai Mujuru, on the sad loss of a dear husband. My condolences go as well to the Mujuru family at large on the sad loss of a beloved relative.
This is not their loss alone. We join them in their grief and Zimbabwe is a lot poorer following this tragic loss of an icon.
May his dear soul rest in eternal peace.
