Zifa and COSAFA president Philip Chiyangwa mourned the death of Zanu-PF politburo member and Masvingo Provincial Affairs Minister Shuvai Mahofa who died after collapsing early yesterday morning.
We are shocked beyond words to say the least. She was a giant in Zimbabwean politics, the party and indeed her family are poorer without her today.
She contributed not only to the emancipation of women, but also in making sure that the gains of the liberation struggle were safeguarded. She also ensured that she remained faithful to the rules of the revolutionary party and in turn inculcated positive energy into everything she did for Zimbabwe, which is why she was eventually appointed Provincial Affairs Minister in Masvingo.
As we mourn her sudden death, we will never forget the values she stood for and we salute her as a gallant daughter of the soil.
On behalf of the ZIFA executive committee, the assembly , the secretariat , COSAFA and on my own behalf, I would like to express profound sadness to the President of Zimbabwe, Cde R.G Mugabe, the Mahofa family, the ruling Zanu PF party and Zimbabwe on the fall of a giant. May Her Dearest Soul Rest In Eternal Peace.
