Zanu PF has joined the nation in morning NUST’s founding Vice Chancellor, Professor Phineas Makhurane, describing him as a jewel of humanity.
Professor Makhurane sucumbed to diabetes at Mater Dei Hospital in Bulawayo yesterday, plunging the academic fraternity into morning.
Zanu PF Secretary for Information and Publicity, Ambassador Simon Khaya Moyo said the death of Professor Makhurane is a blow not only to his family but the nation as a whole.
“He comes from my province, Matabeleland South Province but he was a son of Zimbabwe, and the nation has become poorer in his absence. Professor Makhurane was someone with a solid personality, [he was] an accomplished academic giant, a man of purpose, with impressive intellectual skills,” said Cde Khaya Moyo.
“He was of un-assuming standing and of enviable humility and those who knew him well can testify of his contribution to the nation, which was not only immense but immeasurable. He was a jewel of humanity and his attributes will remain a lasting legacy for generations to come,” he added.
Zanu PF Spokesman for Bulawayo Province, Cde Christopher Sibanda said the death of Makhurane has left a huge void in the education sector as he was a consultant on issues to do with education from policy issues to the curriculum and his appreciation of quality education was of great benefit to the country.
