Susan Tsvangirai obituary

from the UKGuardian


A deeply religious woman committed to the alleviation of poverty and HIV/Aids, she ran a soup kitchen from her own home in Harare. Though she often accompanied her husband to political events, she rarely spoke publicly: when she did, her personal charm proved very effective.

Subsequently renamed the Susan Nyaradzo Tsvangirai Foundation, it aims to help Zimbabweans, particularly women and children. She wanted "to not only feed them but teach them to feed themselves.

Help get things back to what they were, and make them even better if time permits."...
