The Ministry of Information, Media and Broadcasting Services has postponed the Heroes and Defense Forces gala which had been penciled for tomorrow the 18th of August at the Robert Mugabe Square in the capital.

Director media services in the Ministry of Information, Media and Broadcasting Services, Dr Anyway Mutambudzi confirmed the new development saying this is due to the death of a gallant daughter of the soil Cde Shuvai Ben Mahofa who passed away early this week.

The ministry had organised a music and dance gala in honour of the living and departed heroes this Friday, the month that is meant to celebrate the works of those who sacrificed for the country’s independence.

Major Mutambudzi said new dates for the gala will be announced in due course.
