Zimbabweans Split On National Hero Status For Oliver Mtukudzi

Zimbabweans on social media have differed sharply on whether Oliver Mtukudzi should be buried at the National Heroes Acre or not.

Some Zimbabweans have suggested it is a befitting honour for the music icon, while some have said it should be left to the family to decide. Some have also said that being buried at the heroes acre would be an insult to Oliver Mtukudzi as the shrine has been a place for politicians not known for positive contribution to society.

The decision to accord anyone National Hero status is made by the Zanu-PF party politburo.

Tuku was declared a National Hero.

  1. Silly.Gary Magazire ZCFU presient is there.Whats the difference.A burial place is a burial place.Let Dr Mtukudzi be buried on National Shrine.Opposition people bent on destroying Zim.

  2. Heroes Acre is for heroes like Tuku. But Leave it as an option for the family who may consider burying him alongside his chief, kumusha.
