Anne Nhira Should Be Declared A Provincial Hero says Temba Mliswa

Following the sad untimely death of former Studio 263 actress Anne Nhira, Norton Legislator Temba Mliswa suggested that she be declared a Provincial hero.


Writing on his official Twitter account, outspoken Norton legislator Temba Mliswa urged the Zanu PF administration to declare Anne Nhira who died last night in South Africa, a Provincial Hero just the same way they conferred Soul Jah Love with a Provincial hero status when he died last month.

Mliswa went on to highlight some of Anne’s achievements like how she appeared on state media and how she attended the YardZim public lecture. He argued that as a young talented female, this qualified her to be conferred with hero status.

Mliswa also added that, if Zanu PF doesn’t confer her with a Provincial Hero status, he personally would want to know why that is so. He also questioned the criteria Zanu PF uses to confer one with Provincial hero status.

“I don’t dispute Soul Jah Love’s popularity & the mark he made; I enjoyed his music too, but I would want to know why the late Anne Nhira couldn’t be given Provincial Hero status and what the selection criteria are?” he said.

Zimbabwean actress, model, and film producer Anne Nhira died yesterday at the age of 38.

Nhira succumbed to her injuries after she was mugged on Monday afternoon in South Africa.

She came to the limelight as Vimbai Jari in Studio 263, which aired on the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC). One of the most successful local productions to date, the soapie premiered in 2002 and it was based on Harare’s fast lane lifestyles.

In 2017 Nhira made headlines when they stopped the dancer Zodwa Wabantu from coming to Zimbabwe to perform at the Harare International Carnival. This comes after she wrote a letter to the then Minister of Youth Patrick Zhuwao and the show was barred as it was labelled something which was morally unZimbabwean.
