Final Moments

On the day of Mukahanana’s death, Emma and he visited a sick church member in Chitungwiza before returning home peacefully.

Emma noticing that her loved one had no returned home, sent him a message asking about the meeting, to which he replied that he was still occupied. He asked her to eat, but she insisted on waiting.
