Acting MDC-T leader, Nelson Chamisa confirmed Mugabe’s message during Tsvangirai’s burial yesterday.

Former President Robert Mugabe has sent a message of condolences to the family of his long-time political arch-enemy Morgan Tsvangirai, who died of colon cancer last week.

“We have received a letter from Mugabe and (former First Lady) Grace,” Chamisa announced to rapturous applause.

However, the details of the message were not made public.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has already condoled the Tsvangirai family and was yesterday represented by Zanu PF national chairperson, Oppah Muchinguri at the burial.

“I have come to represent President Mnangagwa. We are here to assure you that the government will fulfil its promises to the family. We worked together when Tsvangirai began organising workers while working with us in government,” she said before she was drowned out by whistles and cat-calls from the partisan crowd.
