Gasela was one of the most decent, principled fighters for democracy and for the betterment of our beloved Zimbabwe and its people that I have ever known. He was always ready to stand by me and come to my assistance, whatever the problem and whatever the time or place, and I know that the same is true for many, many others.
This is indeed a cruel blow to Zimbabwe. We know that God’s ways are not our ways, and that they are beyond our understanding, but this is one of those moments when my faith is truly tested. Dear God, why did it have to be Renson, now?
May Almighty God comfort his wife Susan and all his family and friends in this time of need, and may Renson’s soul rest in the peace he worked so hard to bring to all.
