Opposition MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa’s mother has passed away. Ambuya Chamisa “passed away suddenly late afternoon at her home in Gutu” the party said in a statement.
“It is with great sadness that the MDC Alliance announces the passing of Ambuya Chamisa, the MDC Alliance president Nelson Chamisa,” party spokesperson Fadzayi Mahere wrote.
“Ambuya Chamisa was a staunch christian and guiding force for the democratic movement. On behalf of the MDC Alliance we pass our sincere condolences to the Chamisa family, all her relatives and loved ones. Funeral arrangements will be made available in due course,” she said.
On Tuesday Chamisa tweeted: “She toiled to educate me just like all mothers do for families. She taught me industry, respect, discipline, integrity and hard work.
“A hardworking, multi-talented woman. A prayer warrior and pillar in the faith. Collapsed in her garden and went to be with the Lord. Rest in power Mai Nerison!”
