Zimbabwean business tycoon, James Makamba has this Saturday paid tribute to his late son, Zororo, a 30-year-old journalist who succumbed to coronavirus at Wilkins Hospital in Harare.
Makamba shared collaged pictures of a younger self and his son in a radio studio and captioned:
Took the baton stick and ran with it . I am a proud father #RememberingZororoMakamba #RIPZororoMakamba #Resilience.
This tribute comes after Makamba had in March also said:
There is no loss more painful and enduring than that of parents losing their child. My wife, Irene and myself have experienced this pain no fewer than three times.
Our two surviving children, Kushinga and Tawanda also went through the deep pain of losing three siblings. The Makamba family expresses deep gratitude to friends and relatives who comforted us in difficult circumstances of social distance and quarantine.
We thank them all for their prayers and thoughts. We were touched that many people recognised Zororo’s immense talent as a communicator. His loss is thus not confined to his family and friends.
The country and the profession lost an outstanding talent.
For that, we are extremely proud and grateful. Zororo, your name demands that you rest in peace. The family and all those whose lives you touched will always love you and thank you for your short but highly productive life. #RememberingZororo, #RIPZororoMakamba, #Resilience.
