Her body was taken to Zvimba yesterday where it lay in state awaiting burial this afternoon.

The church service took place at a local parlor with senior government officials, among them Justice minister Emmerson Mnangagwa, Women Affairs minister Oppah Muchinguri and Prosecutor General Johannes Tomana in attendance.

President Mugabe was reported to have already gone to Zvimba yesterday afternoon.

Meanwhile, condolences continued to pour in yesterday from different quarters.

    • Grace how can you be such a heartless creature saying things like that to a dead person? what you sow you will definitely reap. GOD is the judge of all things .Your hatred for mugabe is eating you like cancer. if they offended you why don’t you pray for their forgiveness.I am not in politics but i am a christian zimbabwean the word of God says mourn with those that mourn.This is a wrong time for you to show your hatred ,as zimbaweans we should uphold ubunthu wethu . Hats off to ex prime minister Mr.Morgan Tsvangirai who has hounored this trying moment to the First family and has cancelled his address to the nation ,ma the good Lord bless you.To the first family may GOD comfort you in this time of bereavement.
