Liberation war hero, Cde Chinx will be buried at the Harare Provincial Heroes Acre.
This was said by the Zanu PF spokesman, Simon Kaya Moyo after the Politburo meeting.The burial date has not yet been decided. Moyo said Cde Chinx played a key role in the liberation struggle but not everyone can be buried at the national shrine.
The decision to snub Cde Chinx has been widely criticised by many who thought the musician deserved the honour. But Grace and her husband do not regard musicians in high regard, unworthy of the nation’s highest honour.
Popularly known as Cde Chinx, the iconic musician passed on at West End Hospital in Harare.
He was 61. Harare province had written to the party recommending national hero status for him.
Cde Chinx battled blood cancer for some time and was in and out of hospital. He also had tried to seek help from prophets, apostolic faith churches and traditional healers without success.
