Former Prime Minister of MDC-A Morgan Tsvangirai’s family said they will not allow part regalia at his memorial service set for this Saturday.
Tsvangirai’s young brother Manase told news reporters at family’s house in Strathaven that the memorial service is not a political event but it is for a politician who dedicated hi life to bring democratic change in Zimbabwe.
“This is not apolitical event but a memorial service for a politician who dedicated his life to bring democratic change in the country,”
“Everyone is invited,we are not leaving anyone from across the political divide,”
“The other thing we would like to highlight is that,we hope we believe that people who are coming for this memorial should not be seen wearing any political parties’ regalia.Instead we expect people to be wearing the regalia of the late Morgan Tsvangirai,” said Manase.
Manase also said President Emmerson Mnangagwa has been invited in his personal capacity and also on behalf of the government.
He also added that the government is also assisting the family with the expenses towards the memorial.
The memorial service is to be held on May 4 2019 in Buhera District,Manicaland province where he was buried.
Tsvangirai died on Valentines’ Day last year after a two year battle with colon cancer.
