MDC Alliance vice-president Welshman Ncube paid tribute to him, “One of the foremost inspiring & unassuming political leaders I had the respect & privilege to figure with within the MDC has departed to hitch his earlier departed compatriots & fellow nationalist unionist stalwarts, Morgan Tsvangirai, Gibson Sibanda, Fletcher Dulini & Isaac Matongo.”

A lifelong struggle unfulfilled. Never has the condition of the working people been any worse. May you discover within the afterlife the peace you’ll not find in life.”
