A Very Merry Christmas! I am happy to be back home with my wife, children and grandchildren this morning on Christmas Day.

I AM BLESSED! I want to thank my children for taking care of all my medical bills. I also want to say thank you so much to everyone that sent me messages of support, love and prayer while I was in the hospital.

I am doing better today. My journey continues, however… may God bless you all and your families this Christmas. Sincerely: Zex Manatsa.

ZEXIE MANATSA WAS NOT JUST A LEGENDARY "PREACHER AND SEKURU" AS HIS FAMILY WANT US TO BELIEVE. HE WAS MORE THAN THAT.

ZEXIE WAS ALSO A LEGENDARY "SINGER". HE SANG FOR THE PUBLIC IN OPEN SPACES AND ENCLOSURES. HE WAS A GREAT SINGER WHO WAS BLESSED WITH A GOOD VOICE AND DANCING SKILLS.

ZEXIE MANATSA WAS A "WAR VETERAN" IN HIS OWN RIGHT THROUGH HIS MUSIC. ONE SONG WHICH IMMEDIATELY COMES TO MIND IS THE SONG, "MUSANGO UMU MUNE HANGAIWA".

IN THIS SONG ZEXIE MEANT THAT LIBERATION FIGHTERS WERE SUPPOSED TO BE RESPECTED AS THEY WERE FIGHTING FOR OUR INDEPENDENCE.

HE SANG MANY SONGS WHICH ENCOURAGED YOUTHS TO JOIN THE LIBERATION WAR. IN SHORT ZEXIE MANATSA RECRUITED FREEDOM FIGHTERS AND GAVE CONFIDENCE TO THOSE WHO WERE "IN THE FRONT".

I AM DISAPPOINTED BY HIS FAMILY'S ATTITUDE OF TRYING TO PLAY DOWN HIS SINGING HEROICS. SURPRISINGLY, ONE OF ZEXIE'S SONS IS A MUSICIAN.

ZEXIE MANATSA WAS NOT ALONE IN RECRUITING FREEDOM FIGHTERS THROUGH MUSIC. THOMAS MAPFUMO SANG NUMEROUS SONGS PRAISING FREEDOM FIGHTERS, NOTABLY "TUMIREYI VANA KU HONDO."

THESE WERE NOT THE ONLY ONES WHO SANG WAR SONGS. WE ALSO HAD TINEYI CHIKUPO WHO SANG, "POTA NEUKO TISANGANE."

YESTERYEAR SINGERS HAD COURAGE TO SING AGAINST THE INJUSTICE. PEOPLE INTERPRETED THEIR SONGS CORRECTLY. THEY ARE UNLIKE TODAY'S MUSICIANS WHO ARE COWARDS. THEY STAMPEDE TO SING AT ..... RALLIES AND SHUN TO SING AT OPPOSITION POLITICAL PARTIES RALLIES.

THEY MUST SING AGAINST CORRUPTION, JUDICIARY CAPTURE, STATE CRISIS AND HEALTH CRISIS.

{ TO ZEXIE MANATSA I SAY, "YOU ARE REAL A WAR VETERAN OF NOTE WHO FOUGHT HIS WAR AND WON IT. MAY YOUR SOUL REST IN ETERNAL PEACE"}

YOURS SINCERELY
