By Tinashe Sambiri | While the Zanu PF leader Emmerson Mnangagwa has been silent on Tapiwa Makore’s skull, he is exerting pressure on Britain to return Mbuya Nehanda’s head.
This has raised eyebrows as many suspect the cornered Zanu PF leader wants to perform rituals before the 2023 polls.
Mr Mnangagwa is also clandestinely pushing for the exhumation of his former boss Robert Mugabe’s remains for reburial at the National Heroes Acre.
Mr Mnangagwa, quoted by a State run daily paper said:
“We shall, however, continue to discuss to bring back her skull which was taken to the United Kingdom along others.”
Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage Minister Kazembe Kazembe also said:
“Sadly, the remains of Mbuya Nehanda are yet to be repatriated so that proper burial can be accorded in line with our cultural norms and values.
However, I am happy to advise that our efforts to ensure that the remains are repatriated to the country are in progress.”
