Grace Life Covenant Founder and husband-cum-manager to popular gospel songbird Olinda Marowa, Michael Mufaro Ziwenga has died. The Ndinouya hit-maker broke the news via her Facebook.
A medical report from the doctors on the cause of death is yet to surface, but a recent publication by Zimeye has reported that he died of a ‘suspected food poisoning.’ The outlet stated that it all started when he consumed some food that he bought from a local supermarket on Sunday because that’s when he started complaining that he wasn’t feeling well.
Ziwenga is survived by wife Olinda and two children. Mourners are gathered at Number 12 George Road in Hatfield, Harare. The major Pastor’s departure has left the country’s showbiz fraternity into mourning with mass messages of commiseration being shared on all social networks.
Contemporary and Afrofusion artist Pah Chihera writing on her Facebook timeline shared her consolation.
Multi-award winning musician Rev T.Chivaviro also wrote;
” Maranatha patinopembera
Totizve Maranatha patinoungudza
Baba Munoramba muri Mwari…..”
PASTOR OLINDA we are with you in such a time. May these words you sang on this song comfort you. Pastor Michael Mufaro Ziwenga we will all miss you.’
International Gospel Artist Obert Mazivisa was also painfully struck by the news.
