Statement by Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Monica Mutsvangwa following the death of Cont Mhlanga.
Cont Mhlanga knew the value of the arts to humanity, nation-building and civilization.
He used the arts to break every form of barrier be it creed, tribe, colour, religion, gender or racial.
Arts are the thread that knits together the soul of humanity in time from one generation to another. Concurrently in space across regions and continents.
He knew arts reside in human creativity. He tirelessly, methodically and meticulously worked hard.
He mined gems in human creative endowment and polished them for the delights and anguishes of the soul as society moves along.
Along the way, livelihoods found sustenance of livelihoods.
Salute to Cont Mhlanga from the musicians, the actors and their directors and all those who survive on the arts.
