Mugabe Donates US 5000 To Tuku's Family

The two musicians were laid to rest side-by-side at Warren Hills Cemetery on Wednesday.

The donation from the First Family was officially presented by Transport, Communications and Infrastructural Development Minister and Zanu-PF Politburo member Cde Nicholas Goche at Muukudzi’s Norton home.

“When the President and Amai (Grace) Mugabe heard about the death of Sam and Owen, they saw it fit to present to you a gift since there will be lots of people coming to share their grief with you,” the paper quoted Goche. “It is their hope that the gift will go a long way in assisting you to meet funeral expenses when relatives and friends come to visit you during this time of bereavement.”
