The President Robert Mugabe says Cephas George Msipa belongs to a rare breed of nationalists who gave up their entire lives to serve the nation.

Speaking at the National Heroes Acre in Harare at the burial of the late veteran nationalist, Mugabe said Msipa was an honest and a frank unifier who spoke his mind.

Mugabe said Msipa was a hard worker who played a pivotal role in the Unity Accord.

He urged Zimbabweans to emulate the virtues of the late nationalist and live lives that are exemplary both in society and the nation as whole.

Msipa died on the 17th of the this month at Westend Hospital where he was admitted.
He was 85.

The veteran nationalist was suffering from chest infection and hypertension.

The former Midlands Governor and ex- politburo member Msipa becomes the 118th hero to be buried at the National Shrine.
