A statement from the MDC Youth Assembly secretary for Information and Publicity, Clifford Hlatywayo, said Chikadaya’s memorial service will be held in Wedza.
“The void left by the young commander will be difficult to fill,” said Hlatywayo. “He took with himself the energy, vigilance, bravery and dedication which cannot be replaced. In him the MDC and the people of Zimbabwe were robbed of real talent and wisdom.”
“His death came at a time when the Youth President Solomon Madzore is languishing in Prison on fabricated charges of murdering a policeman. The people’s struggle for real change has been seriously set back by the unfortunate events. Leader Chikadaya will forever remain in our hearts as we gear up to fulfil his dream for a new Zimbabwe,” he added.
Chikadaya was a the youth assembly’s Organising Secretary. Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai is expected to attend the memorial service.
