Zhuwao warns ED against diverting from Mugabe's burial wishes

Mugabe’s nephew Patrick Zhuwao has warned President Emmerson Mnangagwa against diverting from the wishes of his uncle on where he wanted to be buried.
There are people to whom President Mugabe outlined his wishes on where he would like his mortal remains to be interred,” Zhuwao wrote on his personal blog.
“As nephew of the Gushungo clan,” he went on, “I’m very aware of the spiritual power that vanaGushungo have over matters to do with their wishes, traditions and legacy. Let those who think they can torment President Mugabe’s departed soul and subjugate the wishes of the Gushungo ancestors know that they are inviting the spiritual wrath of the whole clan. Be warned; you will never win that spiritual war; kuzvikokera ngozi (that is inviting a curse on oneself).”
The government said the burial would take place on Sunday, September 15, but family spokesperson Leo Mugabe on Tuesday told that this was not the case.
