Carole Gombakomba: A unique Zimbabwean voice is lost

Zimbabwe's media has suffered much from repression, exile, and worse, and on December 18 it lost one of its most beloved and compassionate voices. Caroline Gombakomba, a reporter and radio host since 2003 for the Voice of America's Studio 7 broadcasts to the Southern African country, died in Silver SpringMaryland. Gombakomba, 40, had been fighting breast cancer for years and in this second round met death with her customary serenity and courage.
