President Emmerson Mnangagwa and ZANU PF have been invited to attend the memorial service of the late Former Prime Minister and MDC founding president, the late Morgan Tsvangirai.
The memorial is scheduled for the 4th of May 4 in Buhera where he was buried.
Family spokesperson, Manase Tsvangirai said the event was open to everyone. He said:
This memorial is open to everyone be it political parties, churches, individuals or other organisations, everybody is being invited. The reason is that Morgan made friends with everyone during the Government of National Unity, so we cannot be found singling out some people that they must not attend. Even Zanu-PF is invited. We have send invitations through the right protocol channels.
We also invited President Emmerson Mnangagwa, we sent through the invitation and an accompanying letter. Morgan was a former Prime Minister of Zimbabwe and not of a party and because of that there is no way we can have selected people to attend.
Morgan worked for Zimbabwe and we are saying everyone, be it the President, government officials and war veterans and other political parties are invited. This is going to be a very big function.
Tsvangirai also received a courtesy call from Mnangagwa and other senior government officials at his house in Harare shortly before his demise. He was also given a State assisted funeral.
