Family spokesperson, Mr Norman Mabhena, said while the family accepts the national hero status bestowed on his brother, they will grant Cde Mabhena’s wish and lay him to rest at the cemetery.

 

Meanwhile, ZANU-PF Secretary for Administration, Cde Didymus Mutasa, says as a party they respect and accept requests of families of national heroes.

 

Cde Mutasa said it is not out of the ordinary as two other national heroes, Cdes Lookout Masuku and Lizathi Sibanda were buried outside the National Heroes Acre in Harare.

 

He said Vice President John Nkomo is working with the family on how best to give a decent send off to the True Patriot.

 

The burial programme will be announced in due course.
