Tongogara Had A Prophetic Mind, He Foresaw His Death - Chiwenga

Acting President Constantino Chiwenga on Monday claimed that the late national hero and Zimbabwe National Liberation Army (ZANLA) commander Josiah Magama Tongogara had a premonition of his untimely death.

Chiwenga made the remarks while addressing relatives, friends, colleagues and senior Government officials who had converged at the National Heroes Acre to commemorate the 43rd anniversary of Tongogara’s death. Said Chiwenga:

To be where we are today it is because of that intelligent and brilliant commander, he foresaw things that we did not see ourselves at that time, that yes we are fighting but one day we will be free.

He was very aware that he would not see the new Zimbabwe, that he would not see independent Zimbabwe.

He would always say well let us fight, the day l go is the day you are going to be free.

We don’t know why, because he had a prophetic mind. It was unfortunate that he died on that fateful day.

Tongogara was born on 4 February 1938 in Shurugwi and died on Boxing Day in 1979 in a vehicle accident in Mozambique, soon after the signing of the Lancaster House Agreement. | The Herald

During the 1979 ceasefire, he addressed a group of zanla fighters and told them that the war was over but he himself was not going yo enter into Zimbabwe. He had an evil spirit that enabled him to foresee events. Some disturbing facts about Tongo was that he grow up at Ian Smith's parents farm. He killed some zanla fighters but not a single Rhodesian soldier. He never entered the front to command zanla fighters. He was arrested over the death of Herbert Chitepo. He was on one side with ZAPU during the Lancaster talks.

You don't need a prophetic mind to know what zanupf is going to do next, all you need is memory of its past. The past can be used to predict the future.

There is nothing prophetic about being aware that your colleagues are determined to kill you. He knew it

Politics is really a dirty game. Bob Marley once sang about civilians waring among each other,only to achieve their ccoffin.Good men sacrificed their lives to pave way for corrupt and heartless leaders.
