President Emmerson Mnangagwa has sent a message of condolences to the Choeni family, following the death on Friday last week of Cde Rabelani Choeni, who was the Zanu PF Provincial Chairman for Matabeleland South.
“The ruling Party and our Nation have lost a solid and principled veteran of the armed liberation struggle who served both with utmost loyalty and total commitment. As Provincial Party Chairman, Cde Choeni led the Party from the front, always championing its interests ahead of all else,” said the President.
He said Cde Choeni advocated peace, unity and development in Matabeleland South Province and in the nation as a whole.
“That progressive stance won him the respect of the Province he led, and of us all. His departure is a great loss to the Party and our Nation,” President Mnangagwa said.
