Elizabeth Tsvangirai Pays Tribute To The Late MDC Leader
Wife to the late “father of democracy” Morgan Tsvangirai, Elizabeth Macheka, yesterday celebrated Valentine’s Day honouring the fifth death anniversary of Morgan Tsvangirai.
Tsvangirai died on the 14th of February 2018 after a battle with colon cancer.
In an Instagram post shared yesterday, Macheka went down memory lane to his final days writing;
“Happy 5th anniversary, dear Morgan, Reminiscing on how I used to visit you in your last days. Where there’s love, there’s always a way. I sometimes look at the pictures of your last days and the videos I used to send you whenever doctors called me to tell me you were boycotting food or medicine because you missed me .
“I am always in awe of how courageous our love was. I sometimes had to be disguised as a sick patient on a stretcher or sometimes in a wheelchair and had to pass through the hospital morgue side only to be with you from midnight until dawn. Now I am able to talk and laugh about it because God made a way for us.
She also hailed the doctors who looked after him on his deathbed;
“I am forever grateful for the doctors and nurses who not only did everything they can to keep you alive and comfortable. They also understood our love story and would do everything to make sure we see each other every day because they saw us together from the time of our diagnosis, right up to the end. It may be for this reason that The Lord saw it fit to take you on this day of love because you were a selfless, loving person who put other people’s needs first before your own. In the words of St Paul the Apostle in 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 “Love suffers long and it is kind. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful and endures through every circumstance.
She ended her tribute by wishing her late husband a heavenly Valentine’s Day.
