The local business community says the corporate world will never be the same without the influence of the late national hero, Cde. Solomon Mujuru, who was a successful businessman and played a crucial role in encouraging a number of indigenous business people to realise their ambitions.While many people will remember the late General Mujuru for his illustrious role during the liberation struggle, the local business community will forever cherish the contributions by the late former ZDF Commander in molding several indigenous entrepreneurs to become successful business people.
Indigenous Business Women Organisation (IBWO) president Mrs. Jane Mutasa described General Mujuru as an exemplary and professional businessman who was always ready to offer advice and instill good business practices within the corporate world.
Businessman and politician, Mr. Tendai Savanhu, who described the death of General Mujuru as a great loss to the business world, encouraged the local business community to cherish the desire by the late national hero for the realisation of economic independence and empowerment of the previously disadvantaged groups in society.
Former Confederation of Zimbabwe Industries (CZI) president, Mr. Kumbirai Katsande believes the local business community stands to benefit from implementing the sound advice which the late General always gave.
The courageous General Mujuru who died at the age of 66 and was declared a national hero was instrumental in recruiting hundreds of young men and women to join the armed struggle.
His vision was to see a politically and economically independent Zimbabwe.
