He was 51.

According to his son Joe Mawuru, the producer of Zimbabwe’s first and longest running soap succumbed to sepsis syndrome this morning at Parirenyatwa hospital in Harare.

Mawuru began his career in theatre in the early 1980’s and was exposed to acting, directing and working backstage before joining the film industry in 1986.

He worked on several local and international films and in 1987 he produced and directed his first production entitled 'The Tree is Mine' which was followed by a production entitled 'Facilitation Techniques in Training'.

His major breakthrough came in 1993, when he produced one of Zimbabwe’s most successful and well known movies, 'Neria' after which he then spent six months in the national film board of Canada in Montreal.

Born on 15 July 1961, the late film producer is survived by his wife Tsitsi Lilias and two children.

Mourners are gathered at Number 28 Cloverlly road, Chadcombe, Harare.

He will be buried at his rural home in Chiguhune in Gutu.

"I am here for as long as I am still sane, with good memory and will power. I thank God for giving me extra strength. I still have a bright mind; I still have will. I know our history more than you do. I know the wishes of those heroes and those who lie elsewhere more than you do. I know the wishes of the chiefs, dead and alive." - At 6th Zanu PF National People's Congress, 2014.
