CHAKA –  John Makwande Mutyebere (95), the father of prominent businessman, Tawanda Mutyebere has died.
Mutyebere, a retired carpenter died on Sunday.
Tawanda who runs Chicken Slice, one of the biggest fast food outlets in Zimbabwe confirmed the death and said his father was a devout Christian and a member of the Zion Christian Church. He said his father was to be buried at his rural home in Chirumanzu.
Mutyebere was born in Bikita but the exact year is not known. Family members said he was born at a time when people put on loin skins and was the first person in the family to put on Western clothes and he introduced the clan to the modern way of dressing.
Mutyebere went to school at New Year's Gift in the sugar estates in Chipinge after raising his own school fees. After school he did carpentry in Nyanyadzi and worked at various companies in Mutare before he came back to Bikita where he opened his own carpentry shop.
He later relocated to Zvishavane where he worked at Shabani-Mashava Mines as a carpenter.
He at the same time operated a private carpentry shop where he made furniture and coffins.
Mutyebere and his family moved from Bikita in 2002 after they got a good piece of land in Chirumanzu.
The late Mutyebere's nephew said his uncle was loving and caring to the whole family. He said he sent his children and his brothers' children to school.
Tawanda said his father was his source of inspiration.
"He was a loving man who taught us to love and he taught us to love and pray for our enemies. He would pray to God that He also blesses his enemies.
"He taught us to love our children, our families and our relatives. He gave me that kind of love. As a carpenter he taught me entrepreneurship and this has helped me a lot in my businesses," said Tawanda.
Mutyebere is survived by his wife Maria, nine children and 73 grand and great grand children.
