Headman Leaves Behind 35 Children, 68 Grandchildren

A Beitbridge headman, Judah Kohomela (81), who died last week, was laid to rest at his homestead 90 kilometres west of Beitbridge town.

The late headman died after a short illness while he was admitted at Mpilo Central Hospital in Bulawayo.

Kohomela leaves behind three wives, 35 children and 68 grandchildren.

A relative of the late Kohomela, Rodney Mbedzi, said:

We have lost a real father in the real sense. He was a man who was keen to teach and a perfectionist. He was a real leader and this is a loss not only to us but an entire community of Beitbridge.

Beitbridge West MP Ruth Maboyi, several civil servants and hundreds of villagers attended the funeral.

The headman was accorded a government-assisted burial while Chief Sitauze led mourners to Kohomela’s final resting place.
