MDC leader Nelson Chamisa has visited late State President Robert Mugabe’s Blue Roof private home in Harare’s upmarket Borrowdale suburb to pay his condolences to a distraught former First Lady Grace who lost her husband last Friday.
A teary Grace sat a few metres from Mugabe’s coffin in the lounge, on a modest white mattress as Chamisa consoled her.
Speaking to journalists soon after meeting Mugabe’s widow, Chamisa said there was need for Zimbabweans to reflect on the late former leader’s contributions.
“I have come here to pay honour and I am glad that I have come with my colleagues, the senior leadership of the party.
“The reason why we are here is to do the African thing; that is respect.
“You are aware that Mr. Mugabe had connections and relationships with us in the context of politics on the other side with many differences.
“Beyond the differences that we had politically to serve our people, we have to reflect on his contributions. So in line with our Ubuntu and what is expected of us, we have come to pay condolences to the Mugabe family.”
