Mugabe’s bitter Spirit is Causing Death of his Tribesmen – Family Claims

Family of former Zimbabwean President, Robert Mugabe has said that his bitter spirit is fighting from the grave following report of death of a Chief and that those who allegedly pushed for the exhumation and reburial of Robert Mugabe are not feeling well. Mugabe died in September 2019 and his remains were buried at his rural home in Kutama, Zvimba, after his family indicated that he wished to be laid to rest there. This however led to a face-off with a group of Chiefs who questioned the decision. Chief Zvimba had ordered Grace, Mugabe’s widow, to ensure that the former Statesman’s remains were exhumed and reburied in Harare. Chief Beperere, born Alfred Tome, who succumbed to Covid-19 last month backed Zvimba on the order. However following Chief Beperere’s death, the  family n...

Man Utd Losing Battle for Cavani

  Manchester United are losing the battle to keep striker Edinson Cavani at the club next season, the UK Mirror reports.
