My sister has found rest: Makone daughter

HOME Affairs Minister Theresa Makone and her husband Ian, an adviser to Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, were rushing home on Saturday after one of their daughters died in an apparent suicide.

Nyarai Makone, 32, was reportedly found hanged at the couple’s home in Borrowdale.
 
Her parents received the news while travelling with Tsvangirai in Kenya, said the MDC-T party's spokesman Douglas Mwonzora.
 
Mwonzora said: “I can confirm that Nyarai Makone, who is daughter to our MDC-T senior members, Ian and Theresa Makone, died on Saturday in a case of suspected suicide.
 
“Unfortunately, both her parents are out of the country on official business.

“Our message (as the MDC-T) to the Makones is that we are with them at this time of mourning. Our prayers are with them during this sad period.”

The Makones had two daughters, Taneta and Nyarai.
 
At the time of her death, Nyarai was self-employed as an international trader of hand crafted furniture.

Nyarai, who previously worked as a manager at the National Art Gallery of Zimbabwe, graduated with a degree in Art, Design and Applied Arts from Edinburgh University, Scotland, in 2004.
