Cinema Society of Zimbabwe has learnt of the sad passing of Annie Nhira who died in South Africa from injuries sustained in an armed robbery on Monday.
“Our deepest sympathies go out to Nhira family. May God give them peace during this dark period. Annie was a great actress, role model the beckon of hope inspiring millions of viewers at home and abroad. We have been robbed of a star.” Mr. Katsaya, CSZ President, said on the sidelines of Keyona TV presentation at Theatre in the Park.
Nhira was one of the most popular Zimbabwean actresses, model, film producer and talent manager who rose to prominence in the early 2000s and became the darling for many, when she featured in the soap opera Studio 263.
Nhira also tried her hand in singing in 2013 when she released a single, “The One”.
She was based in Johannesburg where she has been since 2008.
At the time of her death, she was also a presenter on Radio54 African PanaramaLive, a radio station founded by former ZBC broadcaster Eric Knight.
She was broadcasting from the station’s South African Studios.
