Former Mashonaland West Provincial Governor and Resident Minister Peter Chanetsa, who died on Monday morning due to a heart failure at Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals, has been declared a national hero.
He will be buried tomorrow at the National Heroes Acre. His body will be taken to Chinhoyi this morning before being brought back in the evening ahead of burial tomorrow. Acting President Emmerson Mnangagwa last night told mourners at the Chanetsa family’s Borrowdale home that the Zanu-PF Politburo had agreed to accord Chanetsa national hero status. He said the announcement of the hero status had been delayed because many Politburo members were still on holiday.
