It was a dramatic day at Doves Funeral Parlour in Harare on Wednesday as Moana`s funeral service could not happen after her paternal and maternal families were locked in a stalemate.
Her maternal side wanted her buried at Zororo Memorial Park while the father`s family insisted on Domboshava
Her father, Mr Ishamel Amuli wants her buried in a Muslim way as he is a Muslim himself while his estranged wife says Ishamel must not be anywhere near Moana’s funeral since he had a sower relationship with the deceased.
Some family members say Moana’s biological mother abandoned her at 18 months and she was raised by her father and stepmother whom she was very close to until about two years ago when her father slapped her for venturing into the socialite lifestyle.
Moana died in a road accident with friends while coming from celebrating her 26th birthday.
Genius Ginimbi Kadungure’s Rolls Royce Wraith in which Moana and two others were passengers was involved in a head-on collision with a Honda Fit along Borrowdale road before veering off the road, hitting a tree and catching fire.
After a long meeting, it appears the families finally reached a compromise. According to Moana`s uncle (maternal) she will be buried at Zororo Memorial Park on Thursday. Her paternal side still insists it will be a Muslim burial and it seems preparations have been adjusted accordingly.
Meanwhile, there was commotion at Doves Morgan
s funeral parlour chapel, as Passion Java arrived for Moanas funeral service. Java’s S Class Benz suffered a cracked windscreen during the chaos. The prophet had to escape from the excited crowd abandoning the event.
