James Makamba speaks on Zororo’s death and the pain of losing 3 children


James Makamba speaks on Zororo’s death and the pain of losing 3 children. Prominent businessman and Zanu PF member, James Makamba, has spoken out following the death of his son Zororo. Zororo who was an accomplished broadcaster and media personality died last Monday after succumbing to the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic at Harare’s Wilkins Infectious Diseases Hospital. He was buried less than 24 hours later.

Makamba opens up on the loss of his son and revealed the heartrending pain that he was endured together with his wife Irene. Makamba went on to reveal that his family has had to go through this horrific ordeal 3 times. Out of the couple’s 5 children, only two are still alive following Zororo’s death last week.

Writing on social media, James Makamba said. On Monday 23 March our beloved son, Zororo Makamba succumbed to the #Covid_19 virus. There is no loss more painful and enduring than that of parents losing their child. My wife, Irene and myself have experienced this pain no fewer than three times.

Our two surviving children, Kushinga and Tawanda also went through the deep pain of losing three siblings. The Makamba family expresses deep gratitude to friends and relatives who comforted us in difficult circumstances of social distance and quarantine.

We thank them all for their prayers and thoughts. We were touched that many people recognised Zororo’s immense talent as a communicator. His loss is thus not confined to his family and friends.

The country and the profession lost an outstanding talent. For that, we are extremely proud and grateful. Zororo, your name demands that you rest in peace. The family and all those whose lives you touched will always love you and thank you for your short but highly productive life.
