Movement for Democratic Change leader (MDC-A) , Nelson Chamisa paid tribute to the late Dr Oliver Mutukudzi who was laid to rest yesterday at his rural home in Madziva.
“I would like to thank the Mutukudzi family and Madziva community for allowing us the opportunity to give our icon and hero, Baba Oliver Mutukudzi a befitting send-off. Kudos to all the artistes and ordinary citizens who showed unity and sense of purpose befitting the occasion.
“Samanyanga left us a great legacy of leadership underpinned by the core values that define our Africaness: love, peace, humility, forgiveness and tolerance. He was a great mentor who, despite his great success, remained humble and faithful to his roots and always praised the Lord.
“We must never forget the profound lessons he imparted through his work. He spoke for human dignity, equality, fairness, peace and tolerance. Tuku music reminds us to be the best we can for each other because that’s what makes the world a better place. May his soul rest in peace,” said Chamisa.
Chamisa lead motorcade was denied entry at the National Sports Stadium on Saturday.
