Nation has lost a patriotic artist – Acting President Chiwenga

By ZBC Reporter

ACTING President General Retired Dr Constantino Chiwenga says he has learnt with profound shock and deep grief of the death of legendary musician Zex Manatsa who succumbed to cancer this Thursday.

In his condolence message, Acting President Chiwenga said Manatsa’s death leaves a gap which will be difficult to fill, not only for the Manatsa family, but for the entire nation which has lost a patriotic artist.

He said Zex Manatsa’s music which dates back to the colonial days and peak of the country’s liberation struggle, remains iconic as it was satirical and poetic.

Meanwhile, the revered musician has been accorded a State-assisted funeral.
