  1. I am saddened by the death of Professor Gordon Chavhunduka. He was my lecturer at the Univeristy of Zimbabwe. He taught me Sociology and Social Anthropology. I enjoyed his lessons very much. I liked his down-to-earth approach to teaching by explaining concepts and theories in very simple terms. I thank him for developing me intellectually. I longed to meet him for a chat and enjoy his wisdom on my return to Zimbabwe, but God had other plans. May his soul rest in peace.

    Prof Gordon Chavhunduka was a great but humble man.American Anthropological researcher Dr. Tonya TAYLOR and me had the opportunity of working with him for a period going beyond nine years and from him we learnt a lot and we achieved a lot. We will greatly miss this man.(Bernard Matshiya)
