HARARE Metropolitan Governor and Resident Minister David Ishemunyoro Godi Karimanzira, who died at West End Hospital early yesterday morning and was immediately declared a national hero.
The Zanu-PF Politburo met in Harare yesterday and unanimously declared Karimanzira a national hero.
"The decision was unanimous. We feel very, very sad. This is a heavy loss not only to the party, but also to the country," said Zanu-PF secretary for administration Didymus Mutasa.
He said Karimanzira's political history dates back to the early 1970s when nationalists were fighting the Ian Smith regime.
"He never let the party down. He never flip-flopped," said Mutasa.
