IN THE PRESS
DEATH, that inevitable conclusion to life, visited several prominent personalities this past week. Humanity will never get accustomed to it no matter how many times it visits.
A dark cloud hangs over the nation.
First, the media sector was robbed of Sharon Muguwu, an Entertainment Reporter who wrote for the Daily News. It is a gap that will be felt in the industry.
We hear she succumbed to leukemia, cancer of the blood; at the young age of 28. We commiserate with her family.
With the heartache still throbbing her relatives, peers and colleagues; former Zimbabwe international footballer Edzai Kasinauyo breathed his last and crossed to other side on Friday. He was 42. May the Kasinauyo family find comfort in the good Lord.
Young souls gone too soon.
Then only yesterday, we woke up to the news of Cde Chinx Chingaira’s passing, that gallant son of the soil whose patriotic melodies made the journey towards the liberation of this country somewhat bearable.
Go well son of the soil, you fought a good fight. What a sad week for the nation. These souls diligently contributed immensely in their diverse spheres during their short lives on this earth. It was as if they were subconsciously aware that they were rushing against time, and therefore made good use of it.
While their struggles were different as black and white, their loss is felt across the whole country. Their respective contributions to the media, soccer and liberation struggle will forever be cherished.
May their dear souls rest in eternal peace.
