    Mnamkumbuka yule mpiganaji machachari wa uhuru wa Zimbabwe?
    Edgar Tekere is dead.
    Haawa ni wapiganaji waliokuwa wanaheshimiwa kama Saora Machel wa Msumbiji.

    Liberation war hero Edgar Tekere dies

    Headlines, News - By admin on June 7, 2011 3:01 pm
    Former Zanu PF Secretary General and Zimbabwe Unity Movement (ZUM) leader Edgar Tekere has died at the Murambi Clinic in Mutare on Tuesday. The liberation war hero was said to be battling cancer. It's reported when Tekere died his wife Ruvimbo and son, Farai Zachariah, were by his bedside.
    The 74 year old affectionately known as ‘Two boy' was credited as the man who single handedly blocked Mugabe and Zanu PF from imposing a one party state and broke away to form his opposition party (ZUM).

    Edgar Zivanai Tekere (1 April 1937 – 7 June 2011) was a Zimbabwean politician. He was a president of the Zimbabwe African National Union who organised the party during the Lancaster House talks[1] and served in government before his popularity as a potential rival to Robert Mugabe caused their estrangement.

    Huyu ni mmoja wapo wa watu wachache waloweza kumwambia Mugabe "usinibabaishe bwana"

    RIP Edgar Tekere. Namkumbuka vizuri sana 2-Boy. Ndiye yeye aliyemualika Bob Marley kwenye sherehe za uhuru Zimbabwe na hata Bob alikaa kwake alipokuwa Zim. Vile vile alizua kesi moto baada ya kumchapa risasi mlowezi wa kizungu. Ile kesi tuliifuatilia sana kwenye magazeti na vyombo vingine vya habari wakati ule. Mwishowe Tekere alishinda. Huyu jamaa na marehemu Josiah Tongogara walikuwa ni viboko enzi zao.

    This man was truly a freedom fighter at heart,
    Tekere supported Mugabe at the 1985 elections but by October 1988 his consistent criticism of corruption resulted in his expulsion from the party. When Mugabe voiced his belief that Zimbabwe would be better governed as a one party state, Tekere strongly disagreed, saying "A one-party state was never one of the founding principles of ZANU-PF and experience in Africa has shown that it brought the evils of nepotism, corruption and inefficiency.
    Does ring a bell?
    This man fought for principles,and has died with his principles.

    The legend Edgar Tekere.

    You stood and fought for what you believed in, without fear or favour.

    May your soul rest in eternal peace.
