CHURCH PAYS LAST RESPECTS TO MUSUKA
A dark cloud engulfed Cranborne today as the church paid its final respects to Mr Morton Musuka who passed away on Tuesday at the age of 59 and was laid to rest at Zororo Cemetery this afternoon.
Scores of mourners, including high profile church leaders like conference lay leader Mr Simon Mafunda, Harare East District Superintendent Reverend Oscar Mukahanana and members of the clergy family attended the funeral service with Rev Dr Gift Machinga giving the keynote sermon.
Musuka was described as a strong and loving person whose exemplary selflessness will be missed and cherished by those who survive him.
Born on 19 August 1960, Musuka did his primary and secondary education at Vhumbunu Primary School and Hartzell High School respectively.
He did civil engineering in France, graduated and worked for the Ministry of Roads/City of Harare and Nicholas O’Dwyer, where he was posted to different countries.
Prior to his death, he had a project in neigbouring Mozambique.
Musuka’s love for sport was highlighted with tennis and soccer very much on his heart as he once played for Old Harareans Tennis and the Toulouse University soccer team and was an avid Liverpool fan and sadly passed three days after they won the UEFA Champions League.
He was a member at Cranborne United Methodist Church and succumbed to colon cancer in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
He is survived by a wife and three children, Tatenda, Ryan and Emmanuel.
May his soul rest in peace.
