Breaking News - Oliver Mtukudzi’s Family Turns Down Heroes Acre Burial Offer By President Mnangagwa

Legendary musician Oliver Mtukudzi’s family has reportedly declined an offer by the government to bury the legendary musician at the Heroes Acre national shrine, opting to lay him to rest at his rural home in Madziva instead.


Mtukudzi passed on at Harare’s Avenues Clinic on Wednesday after battling with diabetes.

A family source indicated that Mtukudzi will be buried in Madziva on Sunday at 2pm.

“He wanted to be buried closeto his ancestors” the source said.

Mtukudzi was declared a ‘National Hero’ by the Politburo yesterday.

President Mnangagwa stated that no member of the Zanu PF politiburo opposed the notion to make Tuku a national hero.


In an interview by media source Kurigo, a Zanu PF official who requested anonymity confirmed the latest developments.
“We are obviously disappointed but their wishes have to be respected. It was going to be a good opportunity for the President to address the nation on the challenges the country is facing,” he said.
