Photo of soldiers on late national hero Joshua Nkomo’s grave circulates on social media (SEE PIC)


A picture circulating on social media of three soldiers on top of Joshua Nkomo’s grave on the 20th anniversary of his death has led to massive protests.

Joshua Nkomo died on 1 July 1999 and was buried at the National Heroes Acre in Harare.

Two of the soldiers are in military fatigues while the other is in civilian attire.

People have called on Zimbabwe army boss to act on the behaviour of the soldiers.

Some have, without any evidence, blamed this behaviour on tribal hatred though the identities of the servicemen have not been revealed.
