HARARE- According to information from MDC Alliance Secretary and legislator, Douglas Mwonzora, Nelson Chamisa was barred from entering the National Sports Stadium for Oliver Mtukudzi’s Funeral.
Chamisa was apparently blocked from attending the funeral by state agents. information from the people at the event suggest Chamisa attempted to enter the stadium with an entourage. Having an entourage was said to be the reason he was barred.
However, some have disputed this saying that officially told by the deputy director of security services that for public security, a decision to bar him had already been made the previous day.
Earlier in the week Chamisa was able to address mourners at the Mtukudzi residence in Norton.
Douglas Mwonzora posted on his twitter:
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.
