A friend in deed: Prof Lovemore Madhuku mourns with Kasukuwere
NATIONAL Constitutional Assembly party president Professor Lovemore Madhuku on Saturday visited former ZANU-PF politburo member Saviour Kasukuwere‘s rural home to pay his condolences following the death of gogo Gladys Lucia Kasukuwere who died on New Year’s eve.
“Prof Madhuku came today to support our family during this difficult time. We are touched by the warmth he has extended to us. Thanks Prof for honoring Gogo,” Kasukuwere said.
Gogo Gladys Kasukuwere, mother to Saviour Kasukuwere, is said to have died from heart-related complications at the age of 79.
She was buried on 3 January, 2019, an event which was snubbed by Kasukuwere’s esterwhile comrades in the ruling ZANU-PF.
Prof Madhuku was one of the high-ranking people who trekked all the way to Kasukuwere’s rural home in Mt. Darwin to pay his condolences as top ZANU-PF officials snubbed the funeral, presumably afraid of being labelled G40 sympathizers by their “system.”
Notable political figures who paid condolences to Kasukuwere include former Harare Mayor Ben Manyenyeni and MDC National Chairperson Lucia Matibenga, who both sent their condolence messages on Twitter.
He went into exile, before sneaking back into the country and getting briefly detained on charges of leaving the country through an undesignated exit.
