GOSPEL star Shingisai Suluma on Wednesday helped President Robert Mugabe celebrate his 89th birthday.

Suluma was flown from her base in the United States – at Mugabe’s request – to perform at a bash organised by the President’s staff on the eve of his birthday.

During celebrations for his 88th birthday held in Mutare last year, he requested that they play Suluma’s song, ‘Mwari Munongondichengeta (Nanhasi)’.

Suluma belted four numbers for Mugabe who appeared deeply moved.

He said: “I want to express my very deep and most sincere gratitude for the message that she has relayed through her well composed songs.

“Four of them, one after another, all carried that spiritual message that it is he, our creator, who is responsible for the fact that I am 89.”

The Zanu PF leader said he had been “touched” by the sincerity in Suluma’s voice whose lyrics were founded on her deep Christian beliefs.

Mugabe said he thought God had given him a long life to carry out a “divide task” of leading Zimbabwe, adding: “He has protected me as his child through challenges and tribulations, through storms.

“Strong winds have come and swept others, not us. We have witnessed the death of family and friends, but the Lord has preserved us – for a reason.”
