Chamisa Barred From Mtukudzi Funeral After He Attempted To Enter Stadium With His Motorcade

MDC president Nelson Chamisa was reportedly blocked from entering the National Sports Stadium on Saturday for the late Oliver Mtukudzi’s funeral after he failed to observe protocol.

Chamisa allegedly attempted to enter the stadium with his motorcade but was barred from gaining entrance by security agents who were manning the entrance.

MDC secretary-general Douglas Mwozora confirmed the incident earlier on Saturday through his Twitter page. Mwonzora and other senior MDC officials were, however, allowed to enter the stadium as they had followed security protocol.

Media, Information and Broadcasting Services permanent secretary Nick Mangwana said that Chamisa is a prima donna who seeks to attract attention. State Media quote Mangwana as saying:

He was not barred. All other dignitaries including ministers were parking their cars outside and walking in. But Chamisa refused and wanted to drive in. Security protocol did not allow this and he walked away. He was not denied entry.

Chamisa is being a drama queen. A prima donna out to attract attention for the sake of it.

  1. It is sad that when a family is in mourning that opportunists would want to turn it into an occasion for personal grandisement and flaunting of self. Where is the respect gone? Are our people looking for headlines when the focus should be elsewhere? I thought funerals were meant to be for those with a relationship with the deceased to say their goodbyes. Not publicity stunts! Lest we forget our culture! May our talented superstar rest in peace!
