GWERU – Hundreds of mourners gathered at the Midlands Provincial Heroes Acre to pay their last
respects to the late liberation heroine and former Zanu PF Kwekwe District Women’ League

devoted and upright person who was diligent throughout her service.
“ Alines Muganhi served diligently in both the youth league as well as women's league after her
promotion in 1989 and she was a person who shunned corruption at all levels of the party,he said.
Sen. Mavima said that it is because of hard work that Zanu PF decided to elevate Muganhus position
in the party to Kwekwe District chairwoman working with T.Gwaunza the district chairman.
She was an honest worker who worked for the party tirelessly without fighting for any seat of
power and she supported the party even reaching the new Dispensation era,'' he said.
Sen. Mavima urged people to emulate the good works that were done by the late heroine.
A representative from the family of the late heroine Alexander Mutami described Muganhu as a
courageous and dedicated family member whose death had instilled great pain in their hearts.

of Muganhu and honouring the family through her.
Women's League Midlands Provincial chairperson Tsitsi Zhou, said the late Muganhu was a pillar of
the party who left a legacy of unity and wisdom.
''We are so disheartened over the loss of this brave woman, she was one of the people who we
would consult if anything was troublesome.She was so diligent in the womens league of Zanu PF and to the party as a whole, she said.
Muganhu is survived by six children and 17 grandchildren.
