The MDC Parliamentary Caucus was disheartened by the untimely death of Hon. Vimbai Tsvangirai – Java, a young and promising MP who had a
good political future in the party that her father founded twenty years ago.
In a statement, the Parliamentary Caucus said it was distraught by the loss one of its own at a crucial time when Parliament needed to unstintingly play
its oversight role given the deteriorating situation in the country.
“It is sad that at a time when we thought she was recovering, God had other plans. The Parliamentary Caucus will remember her for her contributions which put the party enriched and put the party in good stead to play its role as the theatre of the people’s collective aspirations. We miss the enriching presence and contributions that showed her upbringing in the Tsvangirai homestead, a rich political nursery that had once again given us one of its own following the death of our iconic leader last year.
“Our sincerest and heartfelt condolences go to the Tsvangirai and Java families, the people of Glen View and the party’s parliamentary caucus
for this loss. Indeed, her void will be difficult to fill. As a befitting tribute, we pledge that the MDC Parliamentary Caucus will continue to be the repository of the aspirations of the weather-beaten people of Zimbabwe who are struggling to survive under the current harsh economic climate.Go well, patriotic daughter of Zimbabwe.”
