Tsvangirai Mourns Tuku's Son

“I wish to convey my heartfelt condolences to Oliver, his wife Daisy and the rest of the Mtukudzi family following the sad passing of Sam,” the Prime Minister said last night.

Sam, the 21 year old son of Zimbabwe’s legendary singer and icon, died together with his friend Owen Chimhare when the car they were travelling in crashed into a bridge along the Bulawayo- Harare highway early Monday morning.

Tsvangirai said Zimbabwe had been robbed of its musical future while the Mtukudzi family had “lost a beacon of hope and the music industry is all poorer”.

The two are due to be buried at Warren Hills Cemetery in Harare on Wednesday.
