The liberation stalwart and national hero Cde Dumiso Dabengwa’s widow Zodwa has died.

Dabengwa succumbed to cancer yesterday in the United Kingdom.

Posting on Twitter, political analyst and a family friend Dr Ibbo Mandaza wrote:

“Sad news. Our sister, Zodwa Dabengwa has just passed away in London after a long battle with cancer. A brave and great woman, Dumiso’s spouse, Comrade, and mother to Nombulelo and her siblings.”

Zodwa’s husband died in Nairobi, Kenya in 2019 while en-route to Zimbabwe from India where he had been taken for medical treatment, he was 79.
