President Emmerson Mnangagwa has consoled the family of ZANU PF Politburo member and national hero, Absolom Sikhosana who died on Friday night at the United Bulawayo Hospitals.
In his message, the president described Sikhosana as a man who was always dedicated to the freedom and service of his people. He added:
Genial but firm, respectful and soft-spoken but unwavering, the late Cde Sikhosana was always faithful to the party line and would be relied upon to undertake onerous chores for the party in different provinces of our country. In all this throughout his political career, the late hero exemplified unity and cohesion in the party, a demeanour which made him approachable and acceptable across all organs of our party. We will miss him sorely.
