Msipa declared national hero
Former Midlands governor and Zanu-PF Politburo member Cephas Msipa, who died at Westend Hospital in Harare yesterday, has been declared a national hero. Burial arrangements will be announced in due course.
Acting President Emmerson Mnangagwa announced the hero status at Msipa’s son Charles’ Borrowdale home in Harare last night. He said although the Midlands Province was still to write to the party making its recommendations on the hero status, a resolution had already been made in consultation with President Mugabe that he be conferred National hero status.
