News:Muzenda's wife wants Government to erect a statue of her late husband in Masvingo

<vote /> The late Vice-President Simon Vengesai Muzenda’s widow, Maud, has demanded that government erects a statue of her husband in Masvingo to preserve his legacy and keep it alive.

In an interview with NewsDay on the side-lines of a memorial golf tournament held at Masvingo Sports Club yesterday, where the Muzenda family donated golf kits to St Don Bosco Primary and Mucheke High schools, Maud said the government should do the same as it did in Bulawayo by erecting a statue in honour of the late Vice-President Joshua Nkomo.

Muzenda said,

I appreciate all that is being done to keep my late hubby’s legacy alive. It is a good job that everyone is remembering my husband. My wish, however, is to have a statue of my husband erected in Masvingo city, just like in Bulawayo, where the late VP Nkomo’s statue is erected.

Muzenda’s two grass-thatched huts in Mucheke suburb were declared a national heritage site and cultural centre by the Friends of Joshua Nkomo Trust. The city council has also spared the grass-thatched huts from being demolished. Muzenda's wife bemoaned lack of corporate sponsorship for the late VP’s memorial events, like the annual Half Marathon held in Gutu’s Mpandawana growth point, as well as the weekend golf tournament.
