“The ruling party and our nation have lost a solid and principled veteran of the armed liberation struggle who served both with utmost loyalty and total commitment. As provincial party chairman, Cde Choeni led the party from the front, always championing its interest ahead of all else. He advocated peace, unity and development in Matabeleland South Province and in our Nation as a whole,” Mnangagwa said in a statement.
Choeni was a freedom fighter who trained in Morogoro in Tanzania before being deployed in Gokwe, where he operated until the end of the war.
