The widow of the late Defence secretary and first vice chancellor of Bindura University of Science Education Dr James Chitauro, has passed on after suffering a stroke.

She was one of the late President Robert Mugabe’s loudest cheerleaders,

She will be remembered for suppressing strikes against his regime, and creating the conditions that gave birth to the forming of the MDC party in 1999.

British newspapers once flighted as a former Minister who lived in a plush town house in west London with her late husband, James.

Her son and daughter live in the UK and her husband preceded her in 2014.

Florence Chitauro once stroked controversy when while ambassador to Australia she labelled former prime Minister John Howard dictator in retaliation for that countries foreign policy against Zimbabwe.

Mourners gathered at the family’s Borrowdale house in Harare.
