Stop Rumours Surrounding My Husband's Death – Joice

Speaking in the vernacular Shona language at her Chisipite home in Harare, Joice pleaded for people to remain focused on the positive side about her late husband, adding that people should not say things that they were later unable to prove.

Mujuru (62) died on Tuesday morning in a suspicious fire outbreak which burnt his Beatrice farm house and burnt his body beyond recognition.

The police have since launched a probe to find out what happened to one of the commanders of Zimbabwe African National Liberation Army (ZANLA) during the 1970’s war of liberation.

Mujuru served as commander in the Zimbabwe National Army from 1980 and was promoted to a full General in 1992, the year he later retired. He was Member of Parliament for Chikomba from 1994 to the year 2000.

Joice Mujuru is the acting President at a time when she is mourning her husband.  Her co-Vice President, John Nkomo is reportedly ill.

Mujuru has been declared a national hero and will be buried at the national heroes’ acre on Saturday.
