Barely two days after Julius Malema visit to the Mugabe family, the Mugabe family announces that they are now burying Mugabe in Zvimba.
Julius had clearly expressed that Robert Mugabe’s wish of being buried in his rural home must be respected. Did Julius Malema persuade Grace Mugabe to reconsider her decision? Of course yes!! That is why Temba Mliswa was barred from the blueroof because it was a private meeting and Temba Mliswa is loud mouthed.
Patrick Zhuwao released a statement on his website thanking Julius Malema for assisting Mugabe family. How did he assist? In making the decision obviously!
Below is the full statement by Patrick Zhuwao.
Thank you to the EFF and its Commander in Chief Honourable Julius Malema for consoling us and assisting the family of the late President Mugabe to have his wishes honoured on where he would like his mortal remains to be interred. After the family of the late President Mugabe expressed its desire to proceed with his burial in Zvimba, the Government of Zimbabwe, in its press release dated 26th September 2019, indicated that it is cooperating with the family. The Government of Zimbabwe will render all the necessary support to give the late President Mugabe a fitting burial led by the family.
Gratitude also goes to the EFF for celebrating the late President Mugabe’s legacy at the first public memorial service on 12th September 2019 addressed by Honourables Malema, Kasukuwere and Zhuwao. Gratitude also goes to the ANC’s Kwa-Zulu Natal Provincial Executive led by Premier Sihle Zikalalala for honouring President Mugabe as a member of the ANC during his days at Fort Hare University. ANC’s memorial services were addressed at the highest levels by President Mbeki and Honourable Minister Kasukuwere on 17th September and by President Ramaphosa and Honourable Minister Zhuwao on 20th September 2019.
Asante Sana. Iwe Neni Tine Basa. Umsebenzi lo Umkhulu.
