It was supposed to be the happiest day in the life of one of Zimbabwe’s Celebrities Curtis Smith, the man behind the popular Zvirikufaya na Keda Facebook Page.
Keda ( real name, Curtis Smith) flew to Harare from his Canadian base a few weeks ago to tie the knot with the love of his love, Afton Dhana.
But the big day ended up being probably the most devastating Saturday ever for him , his joy turned to ashes in his mouth when his mother, Claudia Boby Senekal collapsed and died during the wedding ceremony.
According to moles who were present when tragedy struck, after the exchange of vows, guests and family were horrified to learn that Kedha’s mother, Senekal, had suffered a fatal cardiac arrest.
Socialite Summer Rose, a friend of Kedha, on Monday set up a GoFundMe me campaign to raise money for “chema” (condolences) and so far £3220 has been raised.
“Zimbabweans I must tell you, I am so proud and so touched by the kindness you have shown Curtis and Afton so far. This beautiful spirit of oneness right here makes me so proud to be Zimbabwean!” Summer Rose wrote on her Facebook page.
“I’m so proud that our culture raised us to lend a hand to a friend in need and recognising that we all need a little help sometimes.
“It’s amazing to know that even though we sometimes quarrel and disagree on certain things, we are all each other’s keeper when it comes down to it! Mwari vakukomborerei uye vawedzere pamatapudza. Much Love to you all” Click here to donate
