RENOWNED author, poet and actor David Mungoshi was laid to rest last Saturday at the family homestead in rural Manyene Village, some 15 km east of Chivhu.
Hundreds of mourners who included fellow artistes attended the solemn ceremony.
Speaker after speaker spoke highly of the 2010 National Arts Merit Award (NAMA) winner, who died aged 71 over a week ago after battling ill health for some time.
“He was a father figure not only to his biological children but to all those who reached out to him seeking help,” one relative said at the burial.
Below are some pictures of the burial.
