WAR veterans, government officials, relatives, and friends converged at Mudhindo in Guruve on Friday for the burial of the late liberation war hero, Cde Cowas Mujeri.

They described his death as a huge loss not only to the family, but to his party ZANU -PF as well.

“The late was a father figure and pillar in our family so it’s a great loss to us. He sacrificed for his country and us to be where we are today,” said a family member.

Another added, “We want to thank President Emmerson Mnangagwa for bestowing this honour upon our family as we grieve the loss of our father.”

Mashonaland Central Minister of State for Provincial Affairs and Devolution, Honourable Christopher Magomo paid tribute to Cde Mujeri for his hard work and loyalty to his country.

“As he grew up, the dear departed Cde painfully observed the oppressive laws injustice and socio-economic imbalances that were being practiced and perpetrated by the white Rhodes Ian regime against blacks,” he said.

Cde Cowas Mujeri was born on 6 June 1939 at Godobi village under Chief Makope in Mazowe. He pursued a career as an educationist from 1965 until his retirement in 2009. He became actively involved in politics in the 60s at Howard Institute under the influence of Mr. Madzimbamuto.

He assumed several key positions in the ruling party’s provincial structures. He reached the zenith of his party-political career when he assumed the post of the provincial Vice Chairman in 2008.

Cde Mujeri trained in Mozambique and was deployed to the front and operated in Chipinge until the ceasefire. After independence, Cde Mujeri
worked in the private sector.

He is survived by his wife and 2 children.
