HARARE – MDC Alliance President Nelson Chamisa has mourned the death of two ministers SB Moyo and Ellen Gwaradzimba and liberation war heroes Morton Malianga and Mukudzei Midzi.
“We note with sadness the passing on of Dr. SB Moyo and Dr. Ellen Gwaradzimba. We extend our condolences to both the Moyo and Gwaradzimba families. Our sympathies are also with Cdes Mukudzei Midzi and Morton Malianga’s families, both Cdes sacrificed everything to free our beloved country,” wrote Chamisa on his Twitter account.
Gwaradzimba and Malianga will be laid to rest at the National Heroes Acre on Thursday while Midzi (94) will be given a State-assisted funeral.
