By James Gwati- Norton MP, Temba Mliswa said just like what happened to the late Zimdance hall chanter, Soul Jah Love, President Emmerson Mnangagwa should declare the late former studio 263 actress, Anne Nhira a provincial heroine.
“Another sad loss to hit the arts and entertainment industry. My sincerest condolences to the family of the late Anne Nhira,” Mliswa said.
“In recognition of her contributions to the industry and March as Women’s month, isn’t she suitable to be made a provincial hero. I don’t dispute Soul Jah Love’s popularity and the mark he made; I enjoyed his music too, but I would want to know why the late Anne Nhira couldn’t be given provincial hero status and what the selection criteria are?” said Mliswa.
The former local soup actress died in South Africa early this week from injuries she sustained from an attack by robbers.
if Nhira is declared a provincial heroine all the funeral expenses would be borne by the state.
