THEY CANNOT BAR ME


Deputy Minister Victor Matemadanda, says the Mugabe family cannot bar him from former president, Robert Mugabe’s funeral.

“For as long as the family has agreed that Cde Mugabe is a national hero, they can’t stop me because Government protocol allows me to attend the funeral. They don’t know what they’re talking about.

“I will not join a fight over a dead man. Where I come from we don’t brag over the dead but we mourn them,” Matemadanda said at a meeting in Bulawayo yesterday.

“I don’t know what the elders in Cde Mugabe’s community in Zvimba say about this. But this person whose funeral they’re refusing to let me attend forgave the people who jailed and tortured him during the liberation struggle.
“For those who may not know, when I started resisting what our leader was doing, I did not just do it. We actually spoke about it. Unfortunately he’s gone and he’s not here to testify.

“I booked an appointment with him and I told him that I was not in agreement with some of the things he was doing. We spoke at length.”
