PICTURES: Body of Vimabi Tsvangirai-Java at City Sports ahead of burial
The body of the late MDC MP for Glen View South, Vimbai Tsvangirai-Java, has arrived at the City Sports Centre before proceeding to Glen forest for the burial.
Mrs Tsvangirai-Java died this week at the age of 36 from injuries sustained in a car crash while on party Congress business near Kwekwe in May.
The accident claimed the lives of two other MDC activists, Tafadzwa Mhundwa and Paul Rukanda. Mhundwa was a relative of the late Vimbai.
Mrs Tsvangirai-Java was recently elected MDC Women’s Assembly secretary-general.
Burial will take place at Glen Forest Cemetery at 3pm today.
Yesterday, First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa paid her condolences to the Tsvangirai and Java families following the death of Vimbai Tsvangirai-Java.
The First Lady said death knows no political party and when one dies, a new register is opened in heaven which is apolitical.
“As you know, death does not know any political party, it does not matter whether you are MDC or Zanu-PF when one dies,” she said.
“They are erased from their earthly register and a new one is opened in Heaven, this is the one Vimbai is registered in now.”
The First Lady revealed that she was at the Tsvangirai’s residence to pay her condolences as an in-law of the family and on behalf of her family.More on ZOOMZimbabwe… Our hospitals and roads have become death traps: Chamisa
“My presence here, as you all might know, is that President Emmerson Mnangagwa is a nephew and I am also an in-law to the Tsvangirai family,” she said. “So, I am here on behalf of the President and the entire family.”
