Zimbabwe Shocked As Nelson Chamisa Barred From Oliver Mtukudzi Memorial By Mnangagwa Government

In another strange and dramatic twist, opposition leader Nelson Chamisa was barred from entering the National Sports Stadium where he wanted to attend the funeral service for the late music icon Oliver Mtukudzi. 


MDC secretary-general Douglas Mwonzora was appalled by the decision and tried to appeal to the authorities but they did not relent.

The decision by state agents to bar @nelsonchamisa from entering the National Sports Stadium is cowardly and totally unacceptable. Although Hon Zwizwai and myself tried to remonstrate with the government ministers present it was to no avail.

The youthful opposition leader received a rousing welcome when he went to pay his condolences to the family of the late musician and perhaps this may have motivated the government’s desire to bar him from showing up at the stadium where he would have been guaranteed a great show of support.
Charlton Hwende also tweeted saying,

Today President @nelsonchamisa was barred by CIOs from entering the National Sports Stadium to mourn @TukuOfficial
