PICS: Nelson Chamisa speaks out after attending burial of murdered CCC supporter Mbongeni Ncube


People’s favourite opposition leader Nelson Chamisa today attended slain CCC supporter Mbongeni Ncube’s burial in Vungu, Midlands province.

Mbongeni was speared to death by evil Zanu PF thugs while attending his party’s rally in Kwekwe.

“I’M IN VUNGU, MIDLANDS…Laying to rest a great Citizen & Change Champion,the murdered Mboneni Ncube. So pained as we mourn with this very loving Ncube family. The young girl Sibonginkosi (pic below) is Mboneni’s only child. Mboneni’s hope for Change is not in vain. RIP champion!” said Chamisa.

Meanwhile, Edmore Shoshera, Albert Maketo Tembo, Percy Mukwaturi, Talent Imbayago and Panashe Makuvaza appeared before Kwekwe Magistrate Mrs Florence Nago on Wednesday facing murder charge and were remanded in custody to March 15.

Police initially picked up 16 suspects but the bulk of them were released without charge.

The five were not asked to plead when they appeared before Mrs Nago.

According to prosecutor Ms Ethel Bhumure, the five, acting in connivance, stabbed Mbongeni Ncube with a sharp object leading to his death upon admission to Kwekwe General Hospital.

The gang also reportedly threw stones and spears and used knives and sjamboks as well as catapults to cause bodily harm to people who were attending the rally.

The group also allegedly damaged motor vehicles and deflated tyres leaving one person dead and many injured.

The five were represented by Liberty Mashanyare of Mavhiringidze and Mashanyare Legal Partners.
