President Mnangagwa left the country this morning to attend former Zambian President Kenneth Kaunda’s funeral ceremony in Zambia.

Several Heads of State from the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and other dignitaries from around the world will attend the ceremony.

President Kaunda died on 17 June and soon after his death, President Mnangagwa declared 14 days of mourning in Zimbabwe in honour of the iconic leader.

His burial is set for Wednesday next week at a national memorial site.

Meanwhile, reports claim Kaunda’s family feels strong-armed in having to agree with the country’s government to bury the statesman at a national memorial site.
