Zanu PF mourners spurn meat donation


KWEKWE — Zanu PF mourners attending their Midlands provincial executive committee member Maxwell Madharani’s funeral wake on Wednesday spurned a game meat donation from the police, saying it was inhuman for them to eat meat from an animal that caused the death of their colleague in a road accident.

Madharani, who was the party’s aspiring candidate for Kwekwe Central constituency, died Wednesday night when his car ran into a stray eland 25km outside Kwekwe along the Gokwe Road.

Officer Commanding Kwekwe police Superintendent Maritha Nyati later took the game meat to Madharani’s home in Chicago suburb, but Zanu PF officials turned down the donation.

“We can’t be seen to be consuming meat of an animal which killed our comrade and feeding people with it. The party will buy meat here, we don’t need it,” said the Zanu PF provincial secretary for security and Madharani’s close friend, Owen Ncube.

Burial arrangements are yet to be announced although provincial vice-chairman Larry Mavhima intimated that they wished Madharani to be declared liberation war hero .
