News of her passing on was announced by Zanu-PF National Chairperson Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri yesterday during the close of the party’s 17th Annual National People’s Conference in Esigodini.
“I have been asked to make an announcement; a very sad announcement. But that is how God works and we have to accept it as it is.
“Yesterday we lost the wife to a national hero who is interred at the Heroes Acre, Chenjerai Hunzvi,” said Muchunguri-Kashiri.
“She passed on yesterday while we were here. We have been advised that she has been declared a provincial hero and she will be buried on the 18th. So for those who can travel to Mashonaland East, they can do so and mourn with others.”
Chenjerai Hunzvi was chairperson of the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association and was a key figure in the chaotic Fast-Track Land Reform programme of the early 2000’s.
Chejerai Hunzvi died on 4 June 2001.
Meanwhile, Mrs. Jenny Hunzvi as been declared a provincial heroine by the ruling party.
