Mpoperi-Mapepeta buried




MASVINGO – Great Zimbabwe Publicity Association general manager Margaret Mapepeta nee Mpoperi who died on Monday morning was buried at the Lawn Cemetery in Masvingo this morning.

People from all walks of life including her colleagues in the hospitality industry, Government officials, her church Elshadai Ministries, Town Secretary Engineer Edward Mukaratirwa, and the chamber secretary attended the funeral

The Great Zimbabwe Publicity Association chairperson, Phanos Matura described Mapepeta as a resilient and passionate hotelier. He said that she served the industry well by taking every opportunity at the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair and many other fairs to market the hospitality industry in the province.

“Mapepeta has left a void in the industry, if there are heroes in tourism, she is one. She united the industry and just a few weeks before her death, she organized a post-Covid19 trip where hoteliers toured facilities throughout Masvingo Province.

“She was resilient even in death. She continued to organize programs when she was ill and she was still contributing to WhatsApp groups until a day before she died,” said Matura.

Her in-laws said she was a good mother.

She is survived by her husband Benias Mapepeta and three sons.https://masvingomirror.com
