    Am not of Zimbabwe extraction, however I read much about Morgan. He was indeed an Icon of a different specie who betrothed the Zimbabwe political space with an eloquent testimony. l love him with an incurable passion because he moved strategically and tangentially and fought gallently for a well deserved political right to upturn the short changing proclivity of Robert Mugabe.
