ARARE – MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa’s mother has died, the party announced on Monday.
“Ambuya Chamisa passed suddenly in the late afternoon of July 6, 2020, at her home in Gutu,” party spokesperson Fadzayi Mahere announced.
“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.”
In a Mother’s Day message in 2019, Chamisa described his mother as an “entrepreneur and hard-worker”, crediting her for “toiling to take me through all education.”
She shunned city life and continued living in the humble surroundings of Chiwara village in Gutu, even as her son’s political career soared.
