As part of our tribute to comrade Tongo, the JMT Legacy Foundation will hold an art and photo exhibition in partnership with the National Gallery of Zimbabwe on February 4 during his birthday.
Rare photographs, sculptures, artwork, archival video, audio recordings and rare memorabilia will be on display.
Public lectures, talks, films and shared experiences will be held at intervals during the exhibition for students and others.

He was on his way to Mozambique when he met his maker, with many theories having been put forward to explain the events which led his demise.
