Simon Chimbetu’s widow Angela has died. Angela (39) died at Chitungwiza General Hospital yesterday afternoon after spending more than a week at the health institution.

According to the family spokesperson, Suluman Chimbetu, Angela was first
rushed to hospital on Sunday August 11 after complaining of lethargy and dizziness.

“She complained of not feeling well during the Harare Gardens commemorative show. We rushed her to hospital and she was diagnosed with high blood pressure and was given medication and bed rest,” said Suluman last night, speaking from Victoria Falls where his band was set to perform at the United Nations World Tourism Organisation General Assembly.

Suluman said the family was awaiting the doctor’s report on the cause of death.
“Most of the tests that had been conducted after she complained of having breathing problems had not yet been out. So, I guess we will all know after the post-mortem,” said Suluman.

A distraught Suluman said Angela’s death was a big blow to the family.
“Our mother was the last shoulder we had left to cry on. Now that she is gone and our father also gone — we are really on our own. Now more than ever we need to be united as a family as these are trying times. She was our pillar of strength,” he said.

Suluman said his late stepmother was a fighter, who never let anything put her down. After her brief hospitalisation, Angela still attended another segment of her late husband’s commemorations in Chinhoyi, but had to be hospitalised again while in Chinhoyi after complaining of breathing problems. 

The family visited Simon’s gravesite in line with Heroes’ Day formalities ahead of another show at Chinhoyi Stadium.

“We went with her to Chinhoyi, but realised later that we should have let her rest some more as she was visibly sick,” said Suluman.

He added: “She insisted on attending the Chinhoyi leg of the commemorations. She was like that. She never allowed anything to put her down. Even after our father died in 2005, she was there for everyone, working hard to put food on the table.” 

Suluman said although his family was already processing burial arrangements, his management was last night frantically trying to book him a flight back to Harare “as soon as possible”. 

He said burial arrangements would be announced in due course. Angela is survived by several step-daughters, sons, grandchildren and one biological son, Kudzi, whom she had with the late Dendera king.



Wonderful news! Cheers to this

How is this wonderful news?

Zanu pf stooges and the mess they left behind should just die off. So yes ,cheers to this!

Mhata yamai vako ine choya.. Ndi maiguru vangu stupid full

The good thing is he appreciated what his mother did for the family. She may not have been his mother from the womb, but was a mother of the heart. May this be a lesson to those who are in step-child/step-parent situations.

Pese pandanga ndichinzwa nyaya iyi I was just wandering why Sulu with all the money that he makes and all the farms that Chimbetu supposedly had would let his own mother be admitted to Chitungwiza Hospital of all places. Pazotaurwa of step mother I began to somehow understand.

VeZanu vanotofawo nhai? Ding dong!

Nhasi mapiritsi handina kunwa, ndiri kuita zvechi mhatex

Sekuru Mr Harare mave kupererwa manje.

That our pain as Zimbabweans, Chitumgwiza Hospital, just like Harare Hospital and Prerinyatwa, was once actually a very good hospital, but now that standards have been run down that now it's only considered a hospital for the poorest people. And our government is not doing much to improve the situation. Whe we were young, there used to be a Minstry of Health programme with the theme "Health for all by the year 2000". Now its health for the rich only, its very expensive to get sick.

You don't really need to tell us the cause of death of your step mom but we already know what lead to the death of Simon Chimbetu; the reporter must do proper research coz Chitungwiza General Hospital is not the only hospital in Chitungwiza; there is a private hospital as well which is whr this lady was being treated; may she rest in peace

I`m with you there, normally vafirwa havamhanye kumedia ukaona anenge achinyanyo miramira ziva kuti panezvaari kuviga. I`m shocked Suluman angaendesa amainini vake kuChitungwiza hospital kusina kana paracetamol. Already Suluman atopa diagnosis yauraya mainini. question mark nga.

Chinyowani chii ipapa? Inga vese anaMashakada nanaChiwoniso vakafira kuChitungwiza ikoko wani.

Little girl,ever heard of freedom of speech and expression?? Im a proud dutch/belgian citizen and i have an automatic right granted to me by both my constitutions of which i enjoy greatly and i exercise them regularly.i have a blog in the Netherlands actually. Now its your choice wheather to love or hate my comments, but young pupoy,you cannot suppress freedom of speech. I know your uncle bob has done this to all you masses but remember dont export your zimboism on this forum,if you dont like it here,then show yourself the exit! Fyi,i speak the best languages in the world,english,french and german. I sense jealousy from you?? Oh well;a successful european like myself earning €9 000 a month and owns a €700 000 bug beautiful house in amsterdam isnt surprised by his jealous foes. And one more thing,there is a copy cat troll on here trying to tarnish my image,ignore ut,its a sick pedophile! I speak a thunderous and bolting truth young puppy,i give it raw!

Here comes the big mistake again. What the matter? Still brain dead? finally have something to say other than being a coward?!! We all know you are sh*** anyway.

Oh i forgot to mention that i am bi-polar too and a bit of a schizophrenic. My other self understands ndebele and shona,but my european half only understands english - do you get it now little girl ?

Yeah you are an assh***e indeed! Keep making yourself look like a fool.

U have nothing, i gather it that we in Zimbo are way better off than u, sorry assholler! Nytie nyt...Tomorrow im here for full combat..!

Ofcourse assh***e. Mbare stooges like you never run out of stupid words

Ooops that did not come out right - i did NOT put my penis in my mama's mouth - i mean to say Mr European Union's mama's house,the other one not mee !!

Ahh this is confusing !!

Your mum pavaidurura manyoka.

Ndiri kutaura zvamai Chimbetu not zvemangai nemagirazi pano wanzwa. Ukwane.

oh l thought you had some credible information on that all u can say

ndivo vaive pa dzandipedza mafuta video here mai ava?

the fact that they got farms and all assets doesnt mean that they have enough money to have her treated at these expensive private hospitals. unoda kuti vatengese purazi kuti varapise munhu. they tried their best, unfortunately no one lives forever. iwe can you afford medical care at avenues?? if you can then you are one of the few blessed ones its high time you know that not everyone is like you. Pamwe urikudya neZanu tibvirepo
