The late Cephas Mashakada’s widow Eunice, has renewed hope for life as well-wishers began pouring help on Thursday.
This follows a story that the widow was down with a heart problem and was appealing for help.
Mai Mashakada’s health has since worsened due to now the Covid-19 lockdown that has also derailed some of her projects.
On Thursday, businessman and Cross Boarder Traders Association boss Killer Zivhu visited the widow in Chitungwiza where he handed over US$100 towards her medication.
“Thank you very much for remembering me my child may God richly bless you for me,” she said as she struggled with her leg.
Zivhu said the medical assistance is part of his 30 member donation that he is targeting people living with cronic diseases.
Last week, Zivhu sourced assistance for a Mutoko girl who’s due for an eye surgery.
According to Mai Mashakada, her only source of income now are returns from local music boards.
“I am only realising ZWL$2 000 from my late husband’s avenues in music and that’s all i get for a full year.
“I am surviving with my four daughters and a son who is also into cross boarder trading but isn’t realising anything because of the lockdown,” she added.
She said the few who has been remembering her include sungura maestro Alick Macheso and Dr Marisa who runs a program assisting late musicians widows.
Mashakada succumbed to diabetes aged 51 on August 23, 2011.
