The body of the late Zimbabwe People’s Democratic Party leader, Ms Isabel Shanangurai Madangure who died on Friday in South Africa arrived in the country yesterday.


Ms Madangure will be buried at Warren Hills Cemetery today.

Brother to Ms Madangure, Dr Obadiah Moyo told ZBC News that his sister was accorded a state assisted funeral.

Ms Madangure died at a South African hospital where she was under-going treatment after sustaining head injuries when she collapsed at her home in Mandara last month.

Her political party championed the cause for black economic empowerment and respect for traditional authority.

Mourners are gathered at number 22 Pringle Road in Mandara, Harare.

Ms Madangure, who was a widow, is survived by four children.
