The MDC Alliance had mourned the death of veteran traditional leader Chief Vezi Maduna Mafu who died this morning aged 86.
In their condolence message, the MDC Alliance said:
We take comfort in the knowledge that our Chief served the people well for the upliftment of their livelihoods, cultivating & sustaining harmony, peace & tolerance in his area of jurisdiction. This is what we expect of traditional leaders, the stores of our value of Unbuntu.
Meanwhile, Ibhetshu LikaZulu Secretary-General Mbuso Fuzwayo has urged the government to declare Chief Maduna a national hero, given his history in fighting colonialism and even defending his subjects from marginalization and oppression even from the Zanu PF Administration.
