President Emmerson Mnangagwa has sent condolence messages to the Mugabe family following the death of Grace Mugabe’s mother Gogo Idah Marufu. Gogo Marufu was a resident at former President Robert Mugabe’s Blue Roof property in Borrowdale, Harare.
Below is Mnangagwa’s condolence message:
I learnt with sadness of the death last night of Ambuya Marufu, mother to our former First Lady, Amai Grace Mugabe, and mother-in-law to our former President, Cde R.G. Mugabe. This sorrowful development visits us at a time when the Mugabes are not well with Amai Mugabe away in Singapore where she has been receiving medical attention. My heart goes out to the family. I urge our entire Nation to stand with, and rally behind the Marufu and Mugabe families so their sorrows are assuaged and made bearable.
On behalf of the Party, ZANU-PF, Government, the Mnangagwa family, and on my own behalf, I wish to express my deepest condolences to the Marufu and Mugabe families on this their saddest loss. May they derive comfort from the broad support which the Nation continues to give them during this hour of deep sorrow and grief.
May Ambuya Marufu’s soul rest in eternal peace. .
