Earlier reports had suggested that the body would arrive on Wednesday, but confirmation from the late Nevernay Chinyanga’s brother, Zivanai, who is currently in South Africa with Nevernay’s widow, together with former Studio 263 actor Steven Chigorimbo, says the body should now be expected this Friday morning and burial is expected the following day at Madzwavava Village in Uzumba.
