Mudzingwa, who suffered a cardiac arrest, will be laid to rest today at Glen Forest cemetery in Harare.
Speaking at the funeral service yesterday, MDC-T secretary-general, Tendai Biti, said it was unfortunate that Mudzingwa was not accorded national hero’s status as he fought in the liberation struggle alongside the late army commander Solomon Mujuru and Nikita Mangena.
“Mudzingwa was the chief of doctors during the liberation struggle, a hero of heroes,” said Biti, who is also Finance minister.
“It is however, unfortunate that he was not accorded the status befitting a hero who fought liberation struggles in his lifetime.”
Mudzingwa served in the Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) between 1980 and 1994, rising to the position of colonel before retiring. He was born on December 23 1942 in Buhera and is survived by his son.
His wife died three years ago.
