Oliver Mtukudzi, who passed away last week on 23 January 2019, was buried today in Madziva, his rural home. The government declared him a National Hero but the family decided to bury him at his home instead.

Chamisa reportedly arrived at the Oliver Mtukudzi homestead as Muchinguri read a speech on behalf of President Emmerson Mnangagwa. Chamisa was reportedly denied entry into the Mtukudzi homestead before hundreds of people broke a police and military barrier to let him in, in the process disrupting Muchinguri’s speech as she repeatedly pleaded with the crowd to be quiet. – ZimLive.com Nelson Chamisa
