MUKANYA, GANDANGA Thomas Mapfumo is going back home now that Mugabe is under arrest. He is a hero to many Zimbabweans as he gave morale to the guerrillas through his Chimurenga music

Thomas Mapfumo’s music unites people across various divides, and he like Oliver Mutukudzi is an icon of a resilient people rising against oppression. Mapfumo unites people across political, race, age, gender, musical taste and political orientation as he sang his heart out during the liberation struggle and gave everyone hope for a brighter future.
