By A Correspondent- Zanu PF President Emmerson Mnangagwa this week visited the late family of the late former Vice President of Zimbabwe, Dr Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo for an unspecified reason.
Observers say the clueless President could have visited the Nkomo family to persuade them to hand him over the late father Zimbabwe’s induku which many believe has the powers to take the country forward.
Speaking after visiting the Nkomo family and the Joshua Nkomo Museum in Matsheumhlophe , Mnangagwa said Government was “embarrassed” for having allowed the Nkomo family to take lead in preserving the legacy of Dr Nkomo through the establishment of the museum.
He said going forward, they would offer all the possible support to the Nkomo family to ensure that the museum gets the status it deserves.
“My appreciation goes to the (Nkomo) family who has done this preservation of the history of Father Zimbabwe; this was a project initiated by the family.
“We as Government feel embarrassed that we did not lead ourselves, but now that it is there, I have assured my young sister (Mrs Thandiwe Nkomo-Ibrahim, daughter to the late Dr Nkomo) that she will receive support from Government to make sure that this place gets the status that it deserves,” Mnangagwa.
