“Mentally, I am strong and optimistic. Mainly because my family is here with me every day, all the way on this journey. My family has been and continues to take care of all my medical bills,” he said.

Manatsa was married to Stella, the woman he has been with for more than four decades.

Unforgettable is their wedding that took place more than 30 years ago. The Green Arrows band leader and his wife had their white wedding on the 29th of August 1979 at the Rufaro Stadium in Mbare. An estimated crowd of over 50 000 people attended the event.

It is reported that the wedding angered the then Prime Minister of Zimbabwe/Rhodesia Abel Muzorewa because he had to cancel his rally scheduled for the same day as people chose the wedding ahead of the Bishop’s campaign event. Nehanda Radio
