GUTU - The opposition MDC-T and Joice Mujuru's National People's party last weekend send delegations for the burial of MDC-T Gutu senator Empire Kufachikati Makamure in Makamure village under Chief Chimombe.
Makamure died suddenly at his Mpandawana home on Thursday, April 6 2017 and was buried on Sunday.
Hundreds of mourners from all over the country, including MDC-T president Morgan Tsvangirai, his deputies Nelson Chamisa, Elias Mudzuri and Thokozani Khupe converged at the Makamure to pay their last respects.
The funeral was also attended by National People's Party national chairperson, Dzikamai Mavhaire and senior party members Dr William Zivenge and Jeffryson Chitando.
MDC-T Masvingo district vice-chairperson, David Charirwe, told TellZim News that the party and province had lost a dedicated cadre who was focused on development.
"We lost a dedicated cadre who was exemplary in the party. He was a man who always had the interests of the people at heart.
"We had hoped that the younger generation would benefit from his wealth of experience. His untimely death has robbed the party of the generous and invaluable advice which he always willingly gave to other party members. May his dear soul rest in peace," Charirwe said.local
