Norton MP has made a claim that only ED Mnangagwa is the better person to get the honour of burying former president Robert Mugabe.

Below is the full statement issued by Themba Mliswa.

Welcome home to your final resting place, Gushungo. When all is said and done we are a nation in mourning over such a great loss. Mamapinda muropa medu Gushungo, thats the truth; your legacy lives on even through all these debates, that legacy.

Even if one hates him there will be that one part of you that is saddened as we draw nearer to Mugabe’s burial. The very multitude who will attend his funeral will bear testimony to the man he was. It will be one of the biggest events witnessed.

l am confident in the knowledge that there is no better person to give Mugabe the send-off he deserves than ED Mnangagwa. Despite what happened he maintained his respect for Mugabe. He is the epitome of tolerance and moving on. Its a gift and he has done well. This can heal the nation.
