Zex Manatsa Accorded State-assisted Funeral

Zex Manatsa Accorded State-assisted Funeral

Legendary musician Zexie Manatsa who succumbed to cancer on Thursday has been accorded a State-assisted funeral.

The conferment was announced by the National Arts Council of Zimbabwe director Nicholas Moyo to the family in Westgate, Harare on Friday afternoon.

Meanwhile, Acting President, General (Retired) Constantino Chiwenga has described the late Manatsa as a great patriot-artist. Said Chiwenga:

Zex remains an iconic figure in the music industry whose music career dates back to the colonial days and peaking at the height of our armed liberation struggle.

He contributed immensely to the struggle for our country’s Independence through satirical, poetic compositions.

Songs such as “Baba Tipeiwo Ndege,” “Musango Mune Hangaiwa”, Ndarota Ndina Mai”, among others immediately come to mind.

His songs were always pregnant with messages aimed at inspiring others to focus on the greater good for our society and our great country.

Similarly, he was averse to both political and religious prostitution and encouraged our people to be patriotic and morally upright.

… In the passing of Zexie Manatsa, our country has lost a humble, devout Christian and pastor who will be greatly missed by many of us who knew him from way back in the ’60s and 70s.
