Hatred, selfishness affects Tuku family

It is very agonising to notice events that are taking place within the late icon musician Oliver Mtukudzi’s family. He must be turning in his grave by now.

By Tarisai Chimwedu,Our Reader

What is really pushing Selmor and Sandra to appear so much concerned about their late father’s legacy, while at the same time attacking their stepmother Daisy in public?

My main issue here is about Selmor and Sandra. We may all be aware that at one time they were not in good books with their father, raising suspicion why the two daughters now seem to care so much, a feat they failed when their father was still alive.

To make matters worse, Selmor left her bedridden father for dead, while she went to London for a show. Very sad, indeed.

Furthermore, where did their mother Melody Murape get the audacity, who had long back divorced and was snubbed at Mtukudzi’s funeral, to tell those who cared to listen that Selmor is the annointed one of her father.

It’s now clear that the three are being driven by jealous, greediness, hatred and selfishness towards Daisy. It’s now clear the three are maximising every opportunity they get in the media to say whatever, especially when it is directed at Daisy.

After all, we thought the Tuku brand was bigger than those greedy people whom we demand to have cool heads and plan life as a family and to not cause divisions within the family.

Selmor, Sandra and their mother must leave everything to the Mtukudzi family elders to solve the matter rather than exposing their level of ignorance to the public.

    He will never turn in his grave because the dead know nothing according to Ecclesiastes .You seem to side with only 1 party who maybe paid you a few dollars to write this sick piece.You need to understand that Melody and her kids were/are bitter for losing their father to Daisy and what they are doing is very natural.And Daisy herself had a hand in everything that is happening now coz she wanted Melody “to be forgotten “as if she never existed judging by what happened at Tuku funeral.Even paMemorial she never consulted the girls despite them being the eldest.Ini my father remarried when my mom died and when he died paspeech we gave equal chances to the families of both wives-ndochivanhu chaicho ichocho.

  2. And who are you to write such nonsense as well. Why dont you also leave it to the Tuku family to sort out their mess.

  3. This is crap, Newsday dont allow your brand to go down with such unbalanced articles

    saka iwe munyori wakwana papi ipapa ,Nemiwo Newsday munazvo,kusvibisirwa brandi nam renyu nekamunhu kapiwa Teni husa aka.

  5. this is poor journalism and its apparent the writer was paid to write against the Selmor side of the family.But that was Tuku first family and he never spoke against that side of the family.Its apparent that Daisy want to monopolise the Mtukudzi legacy but then its the greediness on her part.Its never easy in families with such a scenario as tuku had and the family at moments like this should be left to work things out.since selmor show was well attended,it shows the fans are with her.

  6. Tarisai stop your nonsense.Verify and qualify your soUrces.If anything DAISY CLOSED THE DOOR TO EVERYONE WHEN TUKU GOT SERIOUSLY ILL.YOURSELF DID YOU EVER TRIED TO GO TO PAKARE PAYE OR NORTON TO VISIT HIM,if you had you would write a better story.ARE YOU PAID TO WRITE THIS BY DAISY.DAISY BLOCKED ANYTHING AND ANYONE.DO YOU THINK TUKU WOULD DIE IN ZIMBABWE IF EVERYBODY KNEW.HE COULD HAVE BEEN FLOWN OUT ANYTIME ANY DAY.HE WOULD HAVE DIED IN BETTER CARE.

  7. Dzikamawo wakura

    I am betting my last bond coin that this article was written by Daisy herself using a nom de plume!

  8. UNOPENGA HAPANA AKA PIHWA FEW DOLLARS ZVIRI PACHENA

  9. This type of journalism leaves a lot to be desired . Firstly it is not balanced , secondly the write knows nothing about the general background of the social issues affecting this family . Please journalists dont claim to know everything .
    For starters there was nothing wrong for Serlmor to go to London for a show because she gets feeds her family with music only . She has been a singer all her life , saka dai akaenda saizvozvi ndokudzoka baba vake vasina kufa were going to make noise and accuse her of negligency . Again by that time mudhara Tuku was always in and out of hospital so you cant say Serlmor acted wrongfully . Kusawirirana kwaSerlmor nababa vake ndezvavo veropa rimwe its not for outsiders to judge . Its normal mwana kurwa zhanje dzaamai vake.
    On the other hand Daisy stood by her late husband through and through and she must be respected for that . What Daisy should do now is to embrace the family kutoda vana vemurume waka sevake nehama dzemurume wake. Daisy should live with her decisions because akadanana nemurume aive nemhuri yake and any negative reactions from these people is normal . Daisy should go to Tuku’s relatives ndivo vanokwanisa kupedza nekudzora ana Selmor not anyone else. As per our tradition and culture its normal for the society to sympathize nevana vemufi and that is why people are backing Selmor and Sandra . Vana ava havasi mapenzi and vane hunhu sababa vavo the late Hero Mutukudzi .

    1. @ Chalubva… You the only men with senses here and my advise is Newsday should engage you to be the editor of their newsroom ifected by this crap. a journalist must give a balanced story the dos and donts of the characters involved in the story. This writer must leave office anemakuhwa kuteerera one mother of the family without investigating both ends… its like the writer was never a newsday but DAISY kkkkkk. ofcourse with due respect Mother Mutukudzi stood with her husbund to the last breath and she must be saluted on tht. On family estate she is out of touch with reality as all children are equal to their father inheritance, she must be closer to these children than before otherwise anozviruza akafarisa. Tuku’s children CHILDREN vese kumberi but vanoda a good guidance since magirls vanorwira shanje dzaanaMai vavo wich is health unlike boys are partial pabarika.

  10. Pathetic journalism. Wapihwa mariiko

  11. mmmm, Newsday manyadzisa apa!!!! musadaro plz, this article is a very low point for this reputable newspaper. we all see who is the main cause in the Tuku family.

  12. Not aware of the family intricacies hangu but this is an utterly useless article devoid of any facts and littered with speculation. Unless the writer can explicitly qualify her statements which i doubt, If i was Selmor or Sandra i would surely sue for defamation.

  13. Majournalist should not be invoolved in the Mutukudzi family politics. Its normal in our African culture that families fight for zvinhu zvomufi mostly where there are children from different mothers. The best people to handle the politics are the elders of the family and they are also the best to unite the family. People should respect Daisy as the surviving and loved spouse for Tuku. People should respect life yaTuku from the onset, i.e kusiyana kwaakaitana nefirst wife and kuzoroora kwaakaita esecond wife, all that was Tuku’s life and people should respect his decision as that. There should also be respect for all Tukus children, and Daisy should understand that, and Daisy should also fight to unite Tuku’s children as one family/blood. Ana Selmor and Sandra should also respect Daisy as their fathers wife akachengeta baba wavo kusvikira Tuku afa. Shanje hadzivake musha, asi dzinoputsa musha.
    When it comes to Tuku’s legacy, whoever in his family is capable of taking the legacy ahead should do so, be it mwana wake, muzukuru or mukadzi wake, its now about capability and that person should be supported right through. I think Tuku wasn’t so dull that he died without a will that deals with the distribution of his wealth. The will should be there and that should be respected by all family members concerned.

  14. Tipei ma serious

    So readers are now being given space to pen articles nhai. I thought kuti gutter journalism inowanikwa ku Herald chete. Mr Editor why would you stoop so low kusvika paku publisher rubbish yakadaro. I respect Newsday Brand but apa marasika big time. You owe Mtukudzi daughters an apology. This is rubbish. The article lacks research and it is unbalanced. I think in your tomorrow’s newspaper you are also going to give us their side of the story.

  15. That is why i stopped buying Newsday, paid journalist xaaa

  16. Newsday, this kind of paid reporting is really low of you. Your writer was obviously paid to write this one sided and judgemental piece meant to deceive the readers and sway public opinion towards Daisy. No sources are mentioned, the piece is devoid of neutrality or balance. I will no longer read anything on this website again. Goodbye.

  17. nhai Tarisai Chimwedu?

  18. The article in my humble opinion is rather not objective and the language used is skewed towards a personal vendeta.

  19. this article and especially the journalist are full rubbish

  20. When reading the article, from the first sentence to the last, I had this feeling that the Journalist was biased.Unofanira kuziva kuti kana mukadzi akauya pane mumwe mukadzi zvichikonzera kuti wekutanga aenda, iye wacho asara haana rugare.Daisy waka tora murume wemunhu full stop, and that is not acceptable.

  21. Hamuneti Jameson

    Sick article and very shallow indeed

  22. This is the most stupid article i have ever read you are broke and you are taking money from Daisy to write articles you do not know how much of a witch a step mother can be daisy is clearly an example shut up

  23. Shame on you stupid journalist
