Harare Provincial Administrator, Cde Alfred Tome said twenty buses have been secured from the Zimbabwe United Passengers Company (ZUPCO) and the Central Mechanical Department (CMED) to transport members of the public wishing to attend the burial at the national shrine.

 

The buses are expected to assemble at the open space near the Harare showgrounds by 5am where they will be deployed to various locations to pick up people.
 
“We have organised youths who will be directing the buses to various surburbs within Harare and we are expecting people from across the political divide to attend this national event”.

 

 Tete Sabina did a lot for the emancipation of women in this country and she was a politician in her own right. We must give her a befitting send off,” said Cde Tome.

 

Cde Tome highlighted that the buses are not expected to do single trips, but there will be a continuous shuttle service to enable as many people as possible to attend the burial.

 

He also urged all the people who want to attend the burial to come early, saying the proceedings will start around 10 am.

Cde Sabina Mugabe was born on October 14, 1929.

Due to her immense contribution to the emancipation of Zimbabwe and dedication to the liberation struggle and the cause of women and children, she was unanimously declared a national heroine by the Zanu-PF Politburo that met in Harare on Thursday morning.

Cde Sabina Mugabe will be buried at the National Heroes Acre this Sunday, becoming the sixth heroine to be interred at the national shrine.
