For me, the greatest of the “Great Trees” has fallen: Sekuru Ernest Vengesai Chagonda (98), Father to lawyer Mr I. Chagonda. A Change Champion par excellence! A giant tower of wisdom and a solid moral compass who epitomized courage, patriotism and unflinching commitment to a strong family and a New Great ZIMBABWE.
He inspired me and many to devote towards nation building. In Africa when an old man passed on, we say a library has burned down or a forest has been destroyed. The utmost, highest regard and praise for his most magnificent, gracious, illustrious life. I treasured him. I adored him. How blessed I am to have known him. Out Prayers are with the Chagonda family during this hour. RIP Vakuru VeRasa!
It really shows that the old man was aging gracefully, as you can see not so many of us can reach that age. They are very few people that have reached that age, most of us we can't even reach 50, especially with today's generation that engages itself in all kinds of sexual perversion. Today's generation eats genetic modified foods, today's generation has got no respect for the elders, of which is one of the promises in the Bible that, when we respect elders we live long.
Today's generation live fast and die Young, they don't care about anything. They just care about partying and clubbing. This is why we are dying young, it is because of the kind of the lifestyle that we are living, but we thank God to see such older people like this living this long. More over to see a person who is a pillar of change in the political sector. living to this far also shows that the Lord God has been with him. I understand when President Nelson Chamisa is morning this old man like this. He was really a pillar of his political career, may his soul rest in peace.
