Prominent Bulawayo businessman Gibbons Gumede, who died on Wednesday morning in a freak mine accident, will be buried on Saturday at his farm in Umguza, some 20 kilometres outside the city.
When the NewsDay crew visited Country Rest Camp where mourners are gathered on Friday, relatives were still arriving for the burial.
Police in Bulawayo on Thursday confirmed Gumede died after he slipped and fell into a 17-metre-deep mine shaft at his farm along the Bulawayo-Victoria Falls Road.
The accident happened at around 11 am and the businessman died on the spot.
The late Gumede’s father confirmed burial would be at his son’s farm this morning.
