A former cabinet minister who is now living in self-imposed exile in South Africa, Saviour Kasukuwere, said the death of the late former President Robert Mugabe should be a catalyst for unity among Zimbabweans.
Kasukuwere was speaking during an interview with the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) on September 11. He said:
The death of President Mugabe must motivate us to come together and face this challenging square and look at it in the eye and say how can we fix our country.

Mugabe died last Friday at a Singapore hospital aged 95. A State Funeral was held for him at the National Sports Stadium in Harare on Saturday 14 September 2019 and was attended by dozens of serving and former Heads of State.
