WINDHOEK, 27 JAN (NAMPA) – Africa along with Zimbabwe and the rest of the world are poorer after the loss of Oliver ‘Tuku’ Mtukudzi, said Popular Democratic Movement (PDM) leader, McHenry Venaani on Friday.
The Zimbabwean musician, businessman and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador died aged 66 at Avenues Clinic in Harare on Wednesday.
In a media statement, Venaani described Tuku as an internationally recognised cultural icon of all time.
“He shall forever remain a symbol of African greatness and joins the pantheon of those who struggled and triumphed amid immense challenges,” added Venaani.
He said the human rights activist left behind a legacy that is unmatched in many ways, noting that Tuku’s music will continue to inspire and change the younger generations.
The legendary musician will be laid to rest Sunday at his rural home in Madziwa village in Mashonaland Central province, about 150 kilometres north of Harare.
