Big honour for Muzhingi

Three-time Comrades Marathon champion Stephen Muzhingi will be feted like a King after President Robert Mugabe and Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai agreed at a Cabinet meeting on Tuesday to honour the sporting icon.

Muzhingi’s exploits in the Comrades Marathon were discussed at length at a Cabinet meeting and Mugabe and Tsvangirai were of the same thinking that the Masvingo-born athlete should be honoured.

It is understood that Muzhingi is set to be given a diplomatic passport and cash at a State function to be graced by the two political leaders. The date for the function is yet to be set.
