Mahofa burial moved to Wednesday, family wants to wait for president to return

The burial of the late Minister of State for Masvingo Province and Zanu-PF Politburo member Senator Shuvai Mahofa have been moved from Sunday to Wednesday. Mahofa was declared a national heroine and is set to be buried at the National Heroes Acre. The burial was moved from Sunday after the family requested that the date should be moved to Wednesday to allow President Mugabe to preside over the burial. President Mugabe is currently in South Africa for a Sadc Summit.

Zanu-pf Politburo member Josaya Hungwe confirmed the changes saying:

Initially the date had been set for Sunday, but the family asked that it be changed. We don’t have the power to oppose the wishes of the Mahofa family and we will stand guided by what they want. They want His Excellency President Mugabe to preside over her burial at the National Heroes Acre
