The late leader of Zimbabwe’s opposition MDC-T and former Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai has been repatriated to Harare.
His widow, mother and the family have also left South Africa where he passed away, to start events leading to his funeral next Tuesday.
Tsvangirai lost his battle with colon cancer on Wednesday.
Tsvangirai’s niece Brylyne Chitsunge says, “We are looking forward to the government of Zimbabwe receiving the former Prime Minister of the country and to give us as much support as possible. But we also call to others, to say I don’t think government will have the full capacity to carry out such a funeral for my uncle Morgan. So, I am appealing for the general public as well to try and help us as much as they can, cause I believe that they are already in the village where we will be putting him to rest on Tuesday. There are a lot of people there already so we’re appealing if they can bring water or anything it will be greatly appreciated.”
