Zimbabwea’s Tsvangirai Buried In His Rural Home Amidst Rivalry In The Country

Thousands of people in Zimbabwe have gathered for the burial of opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai, whose death from cancer exacerbated divisions within a movement preparing for elections this year.
A hearse carrying Tsvangirai’s body in a white casket on Tuesday drove slowly through crowds to a school ground near his rural home in eastern Zimbabwe.Rival leaders vied for control of the opposition MDC-T party after the death last week of Tsvangirai, a longtime opponent of former President Robert Mugabe who also entered into a flawed power-sharing arrangement with him after disputed elections.

Party leader Nelson Chamisa said at the burial that the movement heads will unite.

Mugabe resigned after a military takeover in November, and his successor, President Emmerson Mnangagwa, says elections will be held as scheduled this year.
