VIDEO vixen Mitchelle ‘Moana’ Amuli’s mother Yolanda Kuvawonga says waiting longer to lay her daughter to rest will inflict more pain.
The socialite was burnt beyond recognition along with Limumba Karim and Alicia Adams in a car accident that also claimed the life of popular businessman Genius ‘Ginimbi’ Kadungure.
And after a postmortem, the doctors handling the matter ordered for DNA tests to be conducted to identify the victims.
The process is expected to take at least 14 days from today meaning burial will only be from November 26.
Speaking to H-Metro at her Highfield residence yesterday, Kuvawonga said she had identified her daughter but has no option.
She said delaying the process will only cause more pain to her and the family.
“It’s sad that we have to wait for long to lay her to rest and this will cause more pain to us. The doctors said they need to do DNA tests. I managed to identify her, I told them but they insisted on DNA and we have to stick to obey that.
“The specialists are said to be coming from Bulawayo and can only arrive tomorrow (today). So the doctor handling the issue said he will call me and I will go with my other child, they said there is no need to bring the father,” said Kuvawonga.
Kuvawonga said the situation is not only difficult for her but other relatives as well, including Moana’s siblings.
One of Moana’s siblings, Tatenda, could not handle the news of a further delay after a crew that had gone to the hospital notified her.
Tatenda was given the responsibility to speak to the media but could not handle it as she wailed.
“The good thing is you are here and you can see that this decision is not only affecting me but everyone.
“So the thing is after the tests we will have to wait for at least two weeks for the results. We wanted to let her rest but we have no option,” she said.
