Zimbabwean mourn great musician icon

BBC correspondence report that, tributes are pouring in for prominent Zimbabwean musician Dickson Chingaira following his death at the age of 61 after a battle with leukemia.

A report says, a fellow musician Thomas Mapfumo said that Zimbabwe had lost a giant, a true patriot and revolutionary whose music had inspired the black majority.

He said, "we do hope he will get the honour he deserves as a true national hero of our time."
