Cde Tongo immortalised through art

The first lady, Amai Auxillia Mnangagwa accompanied by the Minister of Sport, Arts and Recreation honourable Kirsty Coventry and her deputy, Cde Tino Machakaire were this Thursday taken through the life of the late revered general Tongo by his son, Tichafanehondo Tongogara.

Amai Mnangagwa said the love between late general and his wife, senator Angelina Tongogara is evident through the love letters they wrote to each other at the height of the war.

Son to the late general Tongo who was only eight years old when his father died, Tichafanehondo also saluted the artists for immortalising his father.

The exhibition running at the National Art gallery to showcase the military history of the late general is also meant to educate youths on the country’s road to independence.
