Self-styled Public Relations strategist William Mutumanje has announced that he has lost his father Brigadier General Emile Munemo.
He was the Director General in charge of Civil Military Relations in the Zimbabwe Defense Force.
Said Mutumanje,”It is with a heavy heart we would like to inform you that my father Brig Gen. E.Munemo passed away last night. Mourners will be gathered at 46 Alexander Drive Hatfield.”
In an interview with private press in 2016, Lumumba said he grew up with his step father and only knew about his real father later in life.
“My step-father was pretty much the father I knew growing up and he was of Congolese-Malawian decent. Only last year I learnt who my real father was, and that was a nerve-wrecking experience. I don’t really want to go into detail on it in this interview, but for the avoidance of doubt my roots are in Masvingo, Chivi District to be specific.”
