Scores of mourners have converged at Number 11 Wood Lane in Borrowdale to console the Chikumbirike family after the death of Advocate George Chikumbirike who succumbed to renal failure.
According to the late prominent lawyerâ€™s brother Anesu, the Chikumbirike family has been robbed of a unifier and a father figure.Â
Amongst the first to convey condolences was Judge President, Justice George Chiweshe, who described the late Advocate as a shrewd lawyer who fearlessly executed his mandate.
Advocate George Chikumbirike was born on the 26th of October 1956 in Mrehwa and attended Law School at theÂ then University of Rhodesia during the early 70s.
After a brief stint working for Government, he joined Chiranda and Chihambakwe legal practitioners before setting up private practice in 1990.
The church service for the late lawyer will be held at Chisipite United Methodist Church at 2PM this Friday and burial will take place on Saturday at his rural home in Mrewa at 10 am.
He is survived by several children.
