We have received with profound sadness the news of Chief Vezi Maduna's Departure. Chief Maduna inspired many of us as he was a man of distinguished courage who also possessed a rare quality of self sacrifice for a cause he believed in.

Chief Vezi Maduna was a source of inspiration to thousands of young people who gave their lives to fight racial colonialism and its brutal repression of the black people of Zimbabwe. He confronted the oppressors without fear.
  Even detentions never dettered him. He humbly served his people as their chosen represantative to his best ability. He availled himself to the younger generation giving advice where he could during his later days.  He fought for justice for the victims of the Gukurahundi genocide.
Chief Vezi Maduna never abandoned his role as a traditional leader as he accomodated all the political parties despite their differing and very often violent views against each other.
Zapu mourns a genuine preserver of our tradition and culture. Zapu will not only cherish his wisdom and courage but we pledge to forever look at him as  one of our examples as we continue to struggle for freedom, human dignity and all fundamental rights.
