Mnangagwa’s plan to bury liberation fighters from UK decried over Gukurahundi victims

Zimbabwe’s President Mnangagwa’s administration plans to repatriate from the UK the remains of the country’s iconic heroes who were murdered during the resistance to colonial rule in the early 1890s and early 1900s are being met with criticism, given he has denied victims of the Gukurahundi massacres in the 1980s, who remain in mass graves, a proper burial.

“Government will spare no effort to ensure the repatriation of our ancestors,” says Information Minister Monica Mutsvangwa while addressing journalists in the capital Harare.

A delegation was sent to the UK to verify the remains of these liberation fighters – who died in what is known locally as the First Chimurenga, the early resistance to British colonialists – and to negotiate their repatriation.
