President Mnangagwa has today consoled the Matiza family following the death of Mrs Lilian Matiza, widow to national hero and former Cabinet Minister Joel Biggie Matiza.

Mrs Matiza died on Sunday evening after she suddenly fell ill before being rushed to hospital where she was pronounced dead

The Head of State and Government was accompanied by the two Vice Presidents, Dr Constantino Chiwenga and Kembo Mohadi when he paid a visit to the Matiza Borrowdale residence in Harare.

Family spokesperson Mrs Dorothy Mabika said they were shocked by the death of Mrs Matiza who never complained of any ailment.

"We are not aware of any ailment that Mrs Matiza had complained of. It was only late on Sunday when she asked her son to bring her water. That is when he discovered that she was unwell. She was rushed to hospital where she was pronounced dead," said Mrs Mabika adding that they were waiting for postmortem results.
