Zenzo Ntuliki (57) has been declared a national hero. Ntuluki died on Friday night at Mater Dei Hospital in Bulawayo after a long illness. He was the Assistant Director in the President’s Office in charge of the Western region which encompasses Bulawayo, Masvingo, Matabeleland North and South as well as Midlands. He will be buried on Saturday at the National Heroes Acre in Harare.
Said Minister of State Security Cde Kembo Mohadi to the mourners:
I thought I should convey this message to you which isn’t my message but on behalf of party and the Government that this is what we’ve decided about Zenzo. He’s a national hero and we’ve declared him so.
I’ve known Ntuliki for many years since he was a boy growing under our watchful eye. We gave him the training that equipped him to be the person he was. I think in his group he was one of the youngest and we used to call him kijana (small boy) because of his age.
