Zanu-PF national political commissar, Victor Matemadanda says he will attend the funeral of the late former President of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe, despite Mugabe’s family saying that he was not welcome.
Speaking on a live radio programme on Classic 263 on Monday, Matemadanda said:
I am going to attend the funeral as a leader in the Zanu-PF hierarchy and to support my President Cde Mnangagwa.
No one in the Mugabe family has the right to decide who attends; they are too small for that, not at this juncture. They don’t tell us how to bury our heroes, they are not heroes.
Mugabe is a national person and as such, I will attend and if they don’t want me to view the body then I don’t mind but I will be there as a war veteran and a Government minister.
Let everyone be reminded that I haven’t withdrawn what I said about (Cde) Mugabe that Zimbabwe was not a family dynasty. I still stick to that up to this day. Zimbabwe is not a dynasty.
Matemadanda added that despite his flaws, which are expected of every human being, Mugabe will have a befitting send-off.
