City of Mutare Mayor Blessing Tandi told TellZim News that councillors unanimously agreed to rename Second Street after the late Tsvangirai in honour of his contributions to the politics and democracy in the country.
“No one disputes the contributions made by Tsvangirai in the struggle for a democratic Zimbabwe. He stood up to a brutal regime when it was not fashionable to do so.
“He was brutalised but they did not break his resolve. His dream for a better Zimbabwe for everyone was more important to him than his life. Sadly, he did before that dream could be realised. We will inscribe his name into the history books because he was one of the finest leaders this country has ever produced,” said Tandi.
Tsvangirai has also received a similar honour in Masvingo where the city fathers agreed to rename Hofmeyer Street after the veteran opposition leader.
