President Emmerson Mnangagwa warned Mtukudzi family members against fights over the late musician, Oliver Mtukudzi’s assets.
Mnangagwa who was speaking soon after declaring Oliver Mtukudzi a national hero, called for the deceased’s family members to prioritize addressing the widow, Daisy Mtukudzi’s needs ahead of inheritance gains. Said Mnangagwa:
Tuku is gone, but we do not want to see the spirit of Legion taking over, where people are mainly focused on which of the music legend’s assets they will inherit. We want domination of the spirit of God that persuades people to address the needs of the family that has been left behind.
Earlier in his speech, Mnangagwa said government will take responsibility of all of Tuku’s funeral costs. He also said despite declaring Mtukudzi a national hero, his family will be given the liberty to preside over important decisions concerning the funeral.
