ZANU PF national chairman and Senior Minister of State in the President’s Office, Simon Khaya Moyo has sent a letter of condolences to the family of former diplomat Kotsho Dube who died on Monday.
Moyo described the late Dube, a veteran of the country’s liberation war, as a focused and true revolutionary man that served his country well.
“He was a man of incredible intellectual skills, an accomplished scholar and of pronounced liberation war credentials, the nation is at loss at this moment,” he said in a message to the former diplomat’s widow, Argatha.
“My family and I called your husband malume, as he was a humble man and a son of the soil.
“The history of our liberation struggle has pages of his immense contribution and to our freedom and independence and Zimbabwe is now poorer without him.”
Moyo said Dube’s death had shocked him.
Dube died in his sleep at his home in Kumalo on Monday.
He was 79.
He is survived by his wife, three children and three grandchildren.
Funeral arrangements are yet to be advised.
