There was drama at late Mitchelle Moana Amuli’s funeral in Highfield after her parents exchanged harsh words.
When H-Metro joined the funeral wake Tuesday morning, about 50 mourners were gathered at Moana’s mother, Yolanda Kuvawonga’s Highfield house.
However, around 11am, Amuli and his relatives, most of whom were wearing Muslim attire, took their chairs outside for a caucus.
After the meeting, they summoned a few members to meet with Kuvawonga, presumably to discuss their concerns.
The parties failed to agree and a few minutes after the meeting, the Amuli’s started packing their belongings before driving off in about four vehicles that included a commuter omnibus.
When H-Metro asked him about the goings on at the funeral and how the plans were proceeding, he refused to be elaborate.
“Haaaa isu tadzingwa hatina zvatichakwanisa kutaura isu. Zvatombonzi mwana wacho haasi wangu,” he said and walked away before locking himself in a car which whisked him away.
Other Amuli relatives were heard saying, “Let’s go. They will know kuti baba vakakosha soon.”
Asked about the departure of the Amulis, Moana’s mother refused to comment.
“Handiti mangozvionawo zvaitika, handidi kutaura nezvazvo,” she said.
