By A Correspondent| Philanthropic traditional healer Sekuru Banda has intervened in the ongoing dispute between the late socialite, Moana’s parents over the funeral programme saying both the mother and father should work to have their daughter buried peacefully.
Yesterday, Sekuru Banda visited Moana’s father Ishmael Amuli in Domboshawa where he donated groceries to the family while committing to continue helping until the burial of their video vixen daughter.
He pleaded with Moana’s Father to keep the family issues away from social media and to map a way forward so that Moana may be buried as soon as possible.
Speaking to ZimEye after meeting Amuli, Sekuru Banda said he felt the need to intervene as the dispute was only giving media people stories while widening the rift between the parents.
“Washing dirty linen in public on such a serious issue defies our ubuntu as Africans, society should not watch while people fight, so i felt should not be a spectator yet i can help reconcile the families,” said Sekuru Banda.
He also committed to assist the family until the burial of their daughter.
Moana’s body is still at a mortuary at Parirenyatwa with all burial now in limbo as the parents fight over control of the funeral programme.
On Friday, Moana’s mother approached the High Court seeking cancellation of the burial order, which stipulates that the body of the late socialite would only be collected in the presence of both parties.
Moana born Mitchelle Amuli died in a car crash that also claimed the life of controversial businessman Genius Kadungure and two other foreigners from Malawi and Mozambique.
