CHRA Condolence Message On the Death of Retired General Mujuru
The Board, staff and membership of the Combined Harare Residents Association (CHRA) has received with shock and utter disbelief the sad news of the untimely yet painful death of Retired Army General Solomon Mujuru. General Mujuru was instrumental in the liberation of our country and the Association dips its flag in honour of this national hero. CHRA would like to send its heartfelt condolences to Vice President Joyce Mujuru, the Mujuru family and the nation at large on the sad death of one of Zimbabwe's illustrious sons whose track record speaks for itself. Mujuru role in the liberation of this country is well documented and in no doubt. He was a very capable army officer and one of Zimbabwe's most respected military leaders.
While Mujuru drabbled in politics and at one time a member of Parliament for Chikomba Constituency we honour him for his professionalism during his call of duty. Thus on the occasion of his untimely death we cannot help but make the following demands,
- That our Government declares Retired Solomon Mujuru a National Hero and that he be buried at the National Heroes acre.
- A thorough and independent forensic inquiry into the circumstances leading to his death.
- We Call for urgent security sector reform within the ranks of our security sector as part of a broad program for free and fair elections.
- We urge all residents of Harare to attend his burial and pay their last respects to one of Zimbabwe's liberation heroes.
The Real Commander Has Gone!!!
