Harare Tees founder Tinashe Chiweshe dies
The founder of one of Zimbabwe’s premier urban culture labels Harare Tees, Tinashe Chiweshe has died.
Chiweshe passed away on Sunday after he succumbed to injuries from an assault on Friday which landed him in the Intensive Care Unit of Parirenyatwa Hospital in Harare.
The popular Chiweshe’s death has been met with widespread shock with numerous messages of grief posted on social media platforms.
Chiweshe started his label which grew from strength to strength from just t-shirts to hoodies. He was often seen at exhibitions and events donning his label. He was also a person who was not afraid to speak his mind even when it was not popular opinion.
Mourners are gathered at 43 Sturgess road Cranbone. Burial is tentatively set for Wednesday in Harare.
