Mugabe did not snub my wife’s funeral says George Charamba

President Mugabe’s spokesperson and Press secretary George Charamba has dismissed claims that the President snubbed his wife’s funeral saying that his principal could not make it due to affairs of the state. Charamba’s wife Idaishe Olivia Chengu died on Sunday last week from liver complications.

Said Charamba:

Let it be known that the burial day coincided with Cabinet.

Just to show how supportive the President and the First Lady were, they allowed a significant part of Cabinet to come and join us in bidding farewell to my wife.

I am not even talking about the fact of having Vice Presidents, Cabinet ministers and virtually everyone else who came to console us.

Really, there may be some political or journalistic readings and you guys are entitled to that, but as the two families, we are extremely happy with the levels of sympathies and support that we got from the First Family.

The fact of being the President’s press secretary does not create an entitlement to me, and any goodness that flows my way from the First Family comes from their sheer humanity and graciousness and I am most thankful for that.
