He revealed that Amai Msika suffered a stroke in 2003 and a second one in 2006, describing here as a quiet and cheerful mother.

Another government Minister and Zanu PF Secretary for Information and Publicity who visited the Msika family Ambassador Simon Khaya Moyo said he received mentorship from the Msika family during and after the liberation struggle.
