ZANU PF Officials Block Chamisa From Attending Chief Mabhikwa Funeral | Report

CCC leader Nelson Chamisa was on Saturday reportedly barred by ZANU PF supporters from attending the funeral of the late Chief Mabhikwa (Vusumuzi Khumalo) of Lupane.

The NewsHawks reported sources at the funeral as saying Chamisa was barred from the funeral to accommodate Vice President Constantino Chiwenga.

Chiwenga is representing President Emmerson Mnangagwa and the government at the funeral.

Apart from attending, Chiwenga also donated US$5 000 towards funeral expenses. As a result, ZANU PF supporters have now privatised the burial for narrow political reasons, reported The NewsHawks.

Chamisa, who had good relations with Chief Mabhikwa, wanted to pay his condolences.

He was barred from the funeral soon after his arrival at the Mabhikwa homestead in Lupane on his way to Binga for a political rally. A NewHawks source was quoted as saying:

Chamisa has just been barred from Mabhikwa’s funeral. He arrived here moments ago but was told ZANU PF leaders and supporters have said he should not be allowed to attend.

He is sitting in his car now trying to understand how this could happen.

A university lecturer attending the funeral told the publication that blocking Chamisa from the chief’s funeral unAfrican. Said the unnamed African:

Barring someone from a funeral on political grounds is unAfrican and a new low even by ZANU PF standards.

It shows our politics has lost humanity; promotes intolerance and fascist degradation of our society. This is a disgrace.

Chief Mabhikwa died at St Luke’s Hospital on Monday after he was involved in a road traffic accident along the Bulawayo-Victoria Falls highway on Sunday night.

He was granted a state-assisted funeral by President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

Shameless power hungry bigots. They never cease to amaze. Forcing mourners to weep the Zanu way at a funeral. Command burials.

Although they barred CCC President, Nelson Chamisa, from paying condolences and attending the late Chief Mabhikwa's funeral, that is not going to stop the firebrand from winning Harmonised Elections in 2023.

This Chamisa is a menace at funerals. When Tsvangirai died he wanted to burn Khupe alive by setting up a hut on fire. Power hungry and disruptive for normal proceedings. A funeral is not a rally.

You are not the real Machiavelli. The real Machiavelli has depth & he talks sense. You can't even establish your own unique pseudonym & that reflects your shallowness. Deep down inside you know you have no point. That's why you resort to identity theft to get attention.
