HOME Affairs Minister Theresa Makone and her husband Ian, an adviser to Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, were rushing home on Saturday after one of their daughters died in an apparent suicide. Nyarai Makone, 32, was found hanged at the couple’s home in Domboshava, according to sources.

Her parents received the news while travelling with Tsvangirai in Kenya, according to one report. The MDC-T’s youth secretary general Promise Mkhwananzi, also travelling with the Prime Minister, confirmed the news on his Facebook page.

He said: “Mr and Mrs Makone, pivotal actors in our struggle for democratic change just lost one of their only two daughters. My heartfelt condolences to Ian Makone and his family. We grieve with you!!!”

The Makones had two daughters, Taneta and Nyarai.

At the time of her death, Nyarai was self-employed as an international trader of hand crafted furniture.

Nyarai, who previously worked as a manager at the National Art Gallery of Zimbabwe, graduated with a degree in Art, Design and Applied Arts from Edinburgh University, Scotland, in 2004.
