Watch:Legacy Foundation to lobby Government for Tongogara day

THE Josiah Magama Tongogara Legacy Foundation says it will lobby Government to declare the 26th of December, Tongogara Day in recognition of the late liberation war luminary’s immense contribution to the independence of the country.
The 40th anniversary of the death of the late army general, Cde Josiah Magama Tongogara has bought back vivid memories of the man he was and the values he stood for.

Cde Tongo, as the charismatic leader is affectionately known, may have appeared to many, especially the former colonial masters as an unyielding and difficult man but he was, after all, just a simple man who yearned to see the war coming to an end.
A man who once was out of his military fatigues only desired to be Josiah, not Cde Tongo or any other title associated with his rank.
