GUTU – Pious Chitagu, the head for Gumindoga Secondary in Gutu Central has died.
He died at Claybank Clinic in Gweru two weeks ago just days before his 65th birthday and retirement date from public service.
He is father to former Mirror news editor and current Newsday Masvingo province reporter Tatenda Chitagu.
Chitagu was born in Gutu in Shuro Village under Chief Chiwara and did his primary education at Majada then went to Gokomere High for secondary education.
He enrolled for a teaching diploma at Gweru Teachers' college now Midlands State University and later went to Mlezu College for specialisation in agriculture.
He was appointed deputy head at Mutero High School and was later transferred to Gumindoga Secondary as head until the time of his death.
Chitagu was laid to rest at his homestead in Shuro Village last Sunday where hundreds of people converged to pay their last respects including the deputy provincial director Syleveste Tererai, district schools inspector for Gutu James Mahofa, former Dewure head John Ziki, Alheit Chin'ombe head David Tagutanazvo and several journalists from Masvingo.
Gutu Central legislator Lovemore Matuke described the late Chitagu as forthright person who enjoyed helping others.
"Chitagu was so frank and at one time he told me that if I don't repair the roads no one would vote for me. We used to work very well together when I was at Gutu Council and he helped me quite a lot in my work," said Matuke.
"We have lost a pillar of strength in the family and the education sector as many people passed through his hands. He helped a lot of people to attain their dreams in life, he was a unifier, caring and had genuine love," said Tatenda Chitagu.
The late Chitagu is survived by six children five girls and one boy and three grandchildren.local news
