Cowards die before death

What is so special about Thomas Mapfumo speaking?
Cowards die before death visits them, did he not run away from his shadow or was it a real crime that he absconded from? The guilty are afraid, always afraid.
If indeed Mukanya is a human rights  defender and combatant, why did he not stand with the masses when the old era was running roughshod over them?

Why did the Chimurenga music guru run away with the tail between his legs to seek refuge in the white man's land? Did he not run away from the struggle, from poverty, from oppression and precisely from his own country. Now that others have done the rough work, Mapfumo comes back triumphantly clothed in cowardice whilst riding on a paper tiger.

Indeed cowards die early or is it not dead man walking? Brave men and women went through the 'ovens of trials and tribulations' and came out victorious, now you get the lily hearted coming out of their fox holes to claim the crown and mantel, hypocrites.

May real liberators and patriots stand up. If a crime was not committed, then it was a comedy of cowardice at play.

Chimurenga music is my favourite, I am a Thomas Mapfumo fan but we must call a spade a spade. Rumour says his mother passed away and was buried whilst Mukanya was tucked away in USA.  So much for shadow patriots.
