Late National Hero, Sikhosana To Be Buried At The National Heroes Acre
The late national hero, Absolom Sikhosana will be buried at the national heroes acre in Harare on Wednesday.
A Ministry of Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage official, William Changwara announced the development at the late former Politburo member’s home in Bulawayo and revealed the travel arrangement for mourners. He said:
Three buses will carry people from Bulawayo. Each bus can will carry only thirty-two people.
Bulawayo Minister of State for Provincial Affairs and Devolution, Judith Ncube said despite earlier indications of a possible burial at Bulawayo’s Lady Stanley Cemetery, there was consensus that the late Sikhosana will be buried at the national shrine.
Sikhosana died at the United Bulawayo Hospitals last Friday where he had been admitted with a heart ailment.
He is survived by wife, Jelina Dube Sikhosana, five children and six grandchildren. Mourners are gathered at house number 3115 Nkulumane 5 in Bulawayo.
