PICTURES: Chamisa confronts Oppah Muchinguri at Tuku burial
THE burial of national hero Oliver Mtukudzi in rural Madziva was overshadowed by the political dogfights pitting the ruling ZANU-PF and the opposition MDC, with MDC leader Nelson Chamisa nearly being shut out of the Mtukudzi homestead.
Chamisa only went in thanks to mourners who broke him in, but he was still denied access to the VIP tent.
After gaining entry, Chamisa angrily confronted Defence Minister Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri.
Police and military officers tried to block from entering the rural homestead of music legend Oliver Mtukudzi by forming a human barricade.
However, other mourners would have none of it and instead broke the gate to allow Chamisa entry after being disgusted by the actions of the authorities.
The authorities then carried on their vendetta by denying Chamisa access to the VIP tent. Here are some pics from the events of the day.
