"Return of another Goliath, is it?"
Of Course the man was fearless
But time always decides when
Every great man shalt cease to inhale,
Run away from us and
Turn into an angel
Much cherished was the way that he
Undeniably handled affairs to do with peace and stability
Gabriel was a man of Charisma and
Action was his daily routine
But the giant is no more
Every Tom and Magufuli of this world shall remember you, Bob!
Right from the beginning of the Zimbabwean journey
One and all had beheld that you are the appropriate leader
Because of the way you thought about real issues
Even the way you addressed pertinent issues!
Ringing in your heart was the bell
That told you to act not like a Robot
(But a real Robert)
Muromo wenyu rwaive rwizi rwemashoko ehuchenjeri
Uyo neuyo ainwa ainzwa iri nhapitapi
Gare-gare nguva ndiyo go tisingafungire
Aiwa, vadzimu vadana
Baba tinoti zororai mumasimba
Enyu mashoko, haachazofi akafa
For the founding father of Zimbabwe, Robert Gabriel Mugabe. May your soul rest in power.
