Nelson Chamisa reveals why Zanu PF supporters barred him from attending Chief Mabhikwa’s funeral


CCC leader Nelson Chamisa has revealed that Zanu PF supporters allegedly barred him from paying his last respects at the funeral of the late Chief Mabhikwa in Lupane yesterday morning fearing he would ‘steal the show.’

“I wanted to pay my condolences to the Mabhikwa family because I knew him from Parliament.

“I knew him as a progressive man, but Zanu PF people were frightened,” he said.

“They said if Chamisa was allowed in, people were not going to pay attention to the funeral proceedings, and were going to be over excited.”

Mabhikwa passed away last week in a car accident.
