‘Brian Rusike died two months ago’

YESTERYEAR musician Brian Rusike of the Ruva Rangu fame has been dead for nearly two months before his decomposing body was discovered on Tuesday this week at his Gunhill home in Harare where he reportedly lived alone.

BY LIFE & STYLE REPORTER

Although a post-mortem to establish the cause of death was yet to be done, the family suspect it could have been a stroke or heart attack which happened around September 14.

Brian’s cousin, Kelly Rusike — who said he would not be able to attend the funeral due to work at his base in Spain where he is based — told NewsDay Life & Style yesterday that they have also received such information.

“Yes, apparently they say two months… I’m currently working in Spain so I won’t be able to make it back home in time,” he said.

Brian’s remains were reportedly discovered by a friend who had failed to reach him and had to jump over the pre-cast wall.

Kelly said Brian’s wife, who is based in the United Kingdom, was expected back in the country last night ahead of burial scheduled for tomorrow at his family home in Dema, Seke.

NewsDay Life & Style understands the late Rusike was separated from his wife, who was now living in the UK with their two children.

Mourners are gathered at 14155 Sauer Road in Gunhill, Harare.

    This points to a family that is not united at all. What is cousin? In our African culture Kelly and Brian were brothers, it doesn’t matter kuti mumwe ndewekwa babamunini or babamukuru. This is why Tuku kuti munhu dengezera rudo. Kungomutsana mangwanani, kuti mamukasei, zvokwadi panenge patoita rudo.

  6. Zvinongorwadza chokwadi kuti unongofa kuwora urimumba apa hapana anokutsvaga wehukama wototsvagwa neshamwari shuwa vehukama chii chaizvo. We can have our differences but they say blood is thicker than water,but in this case blood was thinner. Such a prominent family yekwaRusike munonyadzisireyi kudaro.

  7. Kushaya akambomufonerawo for two months. If they cared surely someone, a brother, sister, aunt or uncle could have phoned and found his phone not being answered or not reacheable and continue to phone and end up going to his home. Ko iyewo Brian, kugara wega here akomana. Kune vazukuru, vanin’ina, hanzvadzi dzakafirwa nevabereki. Aishaya kana hwani waitora. Haungagari wega ka semurungu nhai Brian. Kutaura kuti hapana waakambogarawo naye akamboti regai ndimbono spenda time or a night naBraian. Asi chii nhai? So sad, ndarwadziwa nemafiro akadai. What is this world coming to. There is more to Brian’s life and his relationship with his relatives and friends.
