Story by Bruce Chahwanda

THE late National Hero, Cde Ezekiel Tobias Musiiwa Chaunoita has been described as a God-fearing man and hardworking cadre who dedicated his life to empowering communities.

Cde Chaunoita was one of the central figures during the liberation struggle and after independence as a proponent of the development of the country.

Family representative, Mr Rameck Chaunoita said his brother was a pillar of strength.

“He left an indelible mark not only to the family but the nation at large. A principled man, a highly educated apostle, Cde Zvenyika was so kind.”

Fellow congregants of the national hero described him as a God-fearing man, Mubhabhatidzi Philip Makanga and Muvhangeri Samuel Nyariri spoke glowingly about Cde Chaunoita’s role in the church and beyond.

“He was a man of faith, regardless of his post in government he played a big role in the church and was willing to assist when necessary,” said Makanga.

Nyariri said, “We were very close, he would communicate with me about all his problems and triumphs. He was not selective, Cde Chaunoita would ask for advice from church members for direction.”

Cde Chaunoita was also an active ZANU PF member and party colleagues described him as a hard worker beyond measure.

“He was a hard worker, we worked well when I was in the President’s department and was a very loyal and dedicated cadre,” said  ZANU PF Elders Council chairperson, Cde Sydney Sekeremai.

“We worked together in the commissariat depart and we were diligent towards the setting up of party structures from the branch level. The void he has left will be difficult to fill,” said Cde Omega Hungwe

Better known as Cde Tobias Zvenyika during the liberation struggle, the national hero championed black economic empowerment.

That he was a God-fearing man was confirmed at his final resting place as church members confirmed the Almighty’s divine presence with their unique spiritual songs.
