Daisy, widow to the late Oliver “Tuku” Mtukudzi, says she still needs time to mourn her late husband.

Oliver “Tuku’ Mtukudzi died on January 23 age 66 and was declared national hero.

Tuku Music board chairperson Tungamidzai Simango  has vowed to keep the departed crooner’s legacy alive.

And a year   and few days after his death, Tuku‘s widow still needs time to mourn.


She opened up last Saturday when she laid wreaths on her husband’s grave.

“I can’t believe Tuku is gone, each time I am alone at home, I feel like he will come back.

“When I visit the parking lot back home (Norton), I feel like he will come back and still park his car.

“For the greater part of the year, I have been mourning him,” she said.

Asked why she did not remember the legend on January 23, she said:


“Firstly, things were tight for me on January 23 so I wanted to come here when I am prepared.

“By the way I come here once per month so I as a widow I try by all means to do my best.


“After all, I am not in competition to impress people but I just do what we agreed upon with the late.”

She added;

“I can believe is gone I just feel like he is late home. At the moment, I cant believe I am a widow.

“However, prayer  has helped me to be where I am.””
