Addressing the media on Friday, Home Affairs Minister and Zanu-PF Secretary for Administration Ignatius Chombo said that there was no change in the burial date for the late Shuvai Mahofa from Sunday to Wednesday. Chombo also said that Mahofa’s family did not request for a postponement.
There is no change. The announcement that burial will be postponed to Wednesday is news to us. That was not discussed yesterday (Thursday) and it did not come from the family members. The family spoke about Saturday and moved it to Sunday. There could be some mischievous elements who were trying to confuse the situation, but the family and political leadership are at one that burial is on Sunday.
