The former Deputy Minister of Health and Child Care, Dr Aldrin Musiiwa, who died in Ireland last month, has been buried at his CC Molina farm in Chakari.

Dr Musiiwa collapsed and died in Ireland on the 17th of November while on official duty. Health and Child Care Minister, Dr David Parirenyatwa said his former deputy succumbed to renal failure as he was undergoing haemodyalisis since last year. 

He was scheduled to undergo a kidney transplant.

He described the late Dr Musiiwa as a strategic thinker despite being reserved.

President of the Zimbabwe Dental Therapists Association, Mr Wilson Chari said the late deputy minister contributed immensely to the cause of dental health.

Young brother to the late, Joseph said the family will be poorer without Dr Musiiwa.

Dr Musiiwa was appointed Deputy Minister of Health in 2015, a position he held until the time of his death.

He was also legislator for Chakari.

Hundreds of mourners attended the burial and among these were the Minister of Tourism and Hospitality Industry, Cde Prisca Mupfumira and the Minister of State for Mashonaland West Province, Cde Webster Shamu and Health and Child Care Permanent Secretary, Dr Gerald Gwinji.

Dr Musiiwa is survived by his wife and six children.
