Meanwhile, Mthwakazi Republic Party has disassociated itself from some unruly elements who joined the road show blaming Cal-vin’s death on a perceived Gukurahundi hand.
Renowned Bulawayo journalist and radio personality Ezra Tshisa Sibanda extended the message from the MRP President Mqondisi Moyo.
“MRP President Mqondisi Moyo has disassociated his party from the embarrassing and mischievous behaviour by some unruly elements who invaded King Cal Vin”s funeral road show in the Western surbubs of Bulawayo this Saturday afternoon. They were carrying the banner which linked Cal Vin’s killing to Gukurahundi operations. Mr Moyo was in the rural areas, had no knowledge of that protest and told me the banner is not even from MRP and doesn’t have its logo. While MRP, like all Bulawayo people want justice for Cal Vin, they would never act so clumsy and direspct Cal Vin and his family bringing such protest to people who are celebrating the King’s life,” said Sibanda on Facebook.
