“I can only comment in the evening when I get to Bulawayo. I am driving from Victoria Falls,” he said.

In April 1995 Ndlovu was appointed the Deputy Minister of Higher and Tertiary Education until April 2000.He was appointed Minister of Information and Publicity in 2007.

In April 2014 he lost the Zanu PF central committee in Bulawayo.

  11. This statement is not correct – “A veteran of the liberation struggle Ndlovu…”. Ndlovu was just a member of a political party seeking power, full stop.  How could he “liberate” something which was no there before whites came? There was no nation-state before 1890. It was the whites who created the nation-state. Without the whites there would be no nation to talk about. It’s unpalatable but that is one fact you cannot change. We want events to be reported accurately.

      1. @petros – brainwashed fool. This statement is not correct – “A veteran of the liberation struggle Ndlovu…”. Ndlovu was just a member of a political party seeking power, full stop.

    2. Insanity and self-hate at its worst. Zimbabwe existed as a people before the whites came.

      1. @Mushava – idiot. human beings and other animals existed before colonialism so what? It was the whites who created the nation-state. Do not lie that Zimbabwe existed as a people you ignorant fool.

    3. @Musona
      Am not sure what you are trying to explain about a nation-state and link to what think is an incorrect statement. Other his name, I don’t know the deceased but maybe it’s respectful to late the bereaved go through their grief than to bring some of our university concepts that we are failing to explain for that matter.

      1. Thank you Clem. We are only grieving our hero, brother, father and uncle and comrade. His family is hurting.

        Rest in Peace Sikhanyiso.

      2. Well said Clem, Musona haana nyaya, whites came to a country that already existed and introduced their own bounderies but our people already had there boundaries, they knew which clan ruled from which river to what mountain or valley before the whites came. Musona you are only showing your ignorance by your statements……Shame on you!!

  12. Rest in peace.

  13. May his soul rest in peace.

  14. MAY YOUR SOUL REST IN ETERNAL PEACE

  15. @ Musona, pfutseke wako. Wanzwa? Ndati pfutseke wako!!

    1. @petros – scum.
