The late national hero Oliver Mtukudzi’s Will and Testament was filed with the Master of High Court by a Harare law firm, four months after his death.
The one page Will shows that “Tuku” left all movable and immovable property to surviving spouse Daisy Kudzai Mtukudzi.
He left out all his children and family members. The Will was filed on April 15 by Thoughts Deme Attorneys at Law. The Will and Testament read in part:
I, Oliver Mtukudzi, born 22 September 1952, presently domiciled in Zimbabwe, hereby cancel and annul all former wills and cordials and declare this to be my last will and testament.
… I hereby bequeath all my properties, share and shares in any company or companies or entities to my wife, Daisy Kudzai Mtukudzi born on the second of February 1959.
Since Mutukudzi’s death, daggers have been drawn among family members forcefully competing for his property. Apparently, the family members were unaware of the existence of a will.
