"I sat with Cde Masimba on initiatives requested by the Vice President and Minister of Health to help  introducing new strategies and approach in compliance with initives implemented by VP Chiwenga in reformation of our Health system. I am still working on the document ment to be presented before VP in January. He was a humbly and strategic man, he was good at gathering knowledge from people who lead fields, group them to formulate a Think Tank. The man was a true leader, will sadly missed, we had so much in making but all has been hijacked by death. We feel robbed!"
