Jangara who was 52 left behind four known children from his first marriage. One of these has just completed university studies while another one is still at university while two others are at boarding
school at Gokomere High School in Masvingo.
Jangara, who collapsed and died had been facing facing a court case in which a woman, Zvikomborero Paungwana, who claimed to be his wife was suing for beatings.
The sister of Jangara’s late first wife is said to have pleaded uncontrollably with police chefs at Jangara’s funeral held last week at his farm in Chinhoyi.
“She told the police chefs including Commissioner General Augustine Chihuri not to abandon Jangara’s family,” said a source who attended the burial.
“She would cry for a moment and narrate how she and Jangara were taking care of his late wife’s children. She said she was responsible for taking care of them including looking after their needs since the death of her sister while Jangara provided material and financial needs.”
Jangara’s sister in law who is a teacher by profession told the mourners of just how it is going to be difficult for her to look after Jangara’s children on a US$ 150 salary.
Jangara had been tipped to take over the commandership of police security duties at the Chiadzwa
diamond fields from Assistant Commissioner Benge.
But with his well-publicized and reputation damaging court case, his move to Chiadzwa is said to have appeared very much on ice.
Jangara led the brutal assault of Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, other politicians, civic and political activists at Machipisa Police Station during an aborted prayer meeting in 2007.
