Financial Struggles Amidst Health Challenges

In a candid interview with State media, the 69-year-old musician expressed the severity of his health issues, which has hindered him from performing.

 “I am dying slowly due to an illness that has jeopardised my plans. Sometimes I struggle to walk when I come under attack. I have battled this condition for years, but it’s now getting worse,” Zakaria lamented.

The veteran musician also highlighted the financial strain exacerbated by his health condition, noting the dwindling returns from live performances amid economic challenges in Zimbabwe.

Live shows are no longer rewarding since people are also struggling to raise money to attend,” Zakaria revealed.

He revealed that he decided to open up about his illness because he does not want to die in silence.

“I have opened up about my illness because I don’t want to die in silence like most artistes out there.”

Financial Appeal from Family

Margaret Gweshe, Zakaria’s wife, echoed his plea for assistance, emphasizing their difficulties in meeting basic needs.

My husband’s health deteriorated two years ago, he is no longer the same due to poor health. We are appealing for help from well-wishers because we are failing to cater for his needs. He is on a special diet,” she disclosed.
