President Emmerson Mnangagwa has called on members of the public service to work towards improving the lives of Zimbabweans and taking the country forward in pursuit of vision 2030. 

Addressing mourners at the burial of late National Hero Dr Christopher Mushowhe, at the National Heroes’ Acre yesterday, President Mnangagwa said public service personnel should be accountable to the people they serve.

“Under the Second Republic delivering on the aspirations and welfare of our people remains our unwavering commitment.

“Our public servants must therefore be accountable to the people of our great motherland, Zimbabwe," said President Mnangagwa.

Beginning his political life as a war collaborator during the liberation struggle, Dr Mushohwe rose to become an MP, and then a member of the Zanu PF Central Committee.

In Government he was elevated, first to the level of Manicaland Governor, then a Cabinet minister in the ministries of Transport and Infrastructure Development, Information and Publicity, and then Scholarships.

Dr Mushohwe is survived by his wife Penelope Batsirai and eight children – Prince, Primrose, Princess, Trevor, Tanya, Anesu, Shawn, Prayer, and several grandchildren.
