South Africa’s ruling African National Congress (ANC), said that its president, Cyril Ramaphosa will attend the burial of the late President Robert Mugabe.
This was confirmed by party Secretary-General Ace Magashule on Tuesday. He said:
President Ramaphosa will be part of the ANC delegation to the funeral of Cde Mugabe because he has played a very important role as a pan-Africanist.
He was a part of us. He has been part of us. He is one of the leaders who has actually brought Zimbabwe where it is.
He is one of the leaders, including his party; because it’s not only Mugabe. It’s the party which Mugabe represented that actually brought economic freedom for the people of Zimbabwe.
He gave them an education. Zimbabweans are highly educated. He actually ensured that he has the land, an issue that we are grappling with.
We have passed our condolences to the family, to the people of Zimbabwe. We are saying aluta continua! The struggle for a better South Africa, for a better Zimbabwe, continues.
