President Mnangagwa Leaves For Zambia

President Emmerson Mnangagwa left the country Friday morning to attend the official funeral ceremony for the late former President of Zambia Kenneth Kaunda.

Several Heads of State from the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and other dignitaries from around the world will attend the ceremony.

Kaunda died on 17 June and soon after his death, President Mnangagwa declared 14 days of mourning in Zimbabwe in honour of the iconic leader. His burial is set for Wednesday next week at a national memorial site.

Meanwhile, reports claim Kaunda’s family feels strong-armed in having to agree with the country’s government to bury the statesman at a national memorial site.

TimesLive reported that Kaunda had wanted to be buried at his farm next to his wife, Betty but sources close to the family said the government wants to bury him at Embassy Park, an official national memorial site and presidential burial ground.
