OUR SINGLE TRACTOR WAS RECEIVED newsdzeZimbabweNewsdzeZimbabwe


"I have a lot of mouths to feed and now I do not have
any peace of mind. I have to know where my children and grandchildren are going to stay
your next meal. I am appealing to anyone who can help me in this
regards. As soon as I'm in shape, I'll be back to work. "
This was the cry of Dickson "Cde Chinx" Chingaira
help when he spoke to this writer for an article published in the Sunday Mail in
December 4, 2016. That was six months before the hero of the liberation war succumbed
to cancer.
After the story was published, dozens of sympathizers
met in the Chitungwiza house of Cde Chinx with all sorts of goodies. Some offered
medical help while others gave him money.
However, a few weeks later, his condition deteriorated. He
been in and out of the hospital for the next few months until his body was dead
eventually went to the morgue.

A six-year battle with leukemia came to an end. In between,
the singer of "Roger Confirm" was dragged out of his hospital bed in a wheelchair
to receive your gift – a three-bedroom house in Sentosa, Mabelreign, built by
well-meaning leaders led by Zimbabwe Music Awards president Joseph Nyadzayo.

It's been two years since Cde Chinx died, exactly
June 16.
Unfortunately, your family has a cry similar to this one.
publication held in December 2016 as they faced a bleak Christmas. The first
of his two widows, Patricia, spoke to The Sunday Mail Society last Thursday
before the two-year anniversary of the death of the hero of the liberation war.
As the family moved from Chitungwiza to the tributary
suburb of Mabelreign, their fortunes did not improve. Patricia said that she is
asking for a fishing rod and a bit of bait as she already knows how to do the
fish alone.
"Before his death, Cde Chinx told us that this land is
wealth. He told us that if we want to thrive, to live a good life, then we
must use our land. He reminded us that we fought and some died for this land.
So we must respect the earth by working on it, "she said.

The widow of Cde Chinx, who has a farm of 80 hectares in Marondera,
said she lost her tractor because of a debt.
So she was unable to put her land to good use
agricultural season.

"When Cde Chinx was in the hospital, we had $ 500 debt and
These guys came and took our tractor. After a week, we went to pay them like this.
We could pick up the tractor back, but we were told it had already been
sold. Imagine such cannibalism, "she said.
Patricia said that it was not for the fact that her husband was
incapacitated, this would not have happened.
The widow really feels her husband's absence, saying that
There are certain doors that she can not open by herself.
"We have irrigation equipment and electricity. We used
take our product to the Grain Marketing Board, when Cde Chinx was well and we
were able to operate normally. If I get a tractor and some other farms
implement to start over, I can assure you that I will be able to take care of
of my family, "said Patricia.
She added, "I'm so hurt. I got fertilizer and
seed corn but I could not plant. I did not find anyone to help me cultivate
the land. The tickets remain unused as we speak and will try again this year. My
husband and I used to practice farming, so I have the experience. I can
still be a successful farmer. "
Patricia, who met Cde Chinx during the Zimbabwe War
released in Mozambique in 1976, said she was grateful for the beautiful house
she now lives, but she misses her husband, who only enjoyed very briefly.
"I want to thank Mr. (Joseph) Nyadzayo for this house. This is
so comfortable. The neighbors are good for us and we love it here. Nguva shoma
yavakauya (Cde Chinx), panoravel vox pachivezwa panze apo vosvikoti
ndokushata kwandakaita here uku? Aive ma piadas zvawo semunhu aingogara
achitamba zvake (The short time he spent here, he would go to the
sculpture and say, is this how I'm ugly? Of course, he would be kidding –
he was a fun person), "she recalls.

Throughout the interview with The Sunday Mail Society,
Inside and off the record, Patricia circumvented the question of Cde Chinx's musical legacy.

In the 2016 interview, Cde Chinx talked about a band of seven
album that he recorded and was set to be released.
However, his widow seems to know very little about it;
nor seems to have any interest in the subject.
One of Cde Chinx's sons sang some of his father's folk songs
songs at his funeral and was seen as the only one to continue with the father of
legacy. However, it has been quiet ever since.
At its peak, Cde Chinx won two M-Net awards
Africa in the 1990s for his role in the movie "Flame." In 2005, he received a
Silver Jubilee Award at the National Arts Merit Awards (The Most Inspiring Song of
War of Liberation) for the song "Vanhu Vese Vemu Africa".
In 2014, he won the Chairman's Award in Zimbabwe
Music Awards (Zima), which came with a special gift from a three-bedroom house.
