Zimbabwe: Monday 10 December 2012 - Issue 486

press release

Speaking during the burial of Nyarai Makone at Glen Forest Cemetery today, President Tsvangirai took a swipe at the spirit of violence saying there is need to end that flame of violence.

He encouraged the Makone family to grieve with hope as Nyarai was a gift and a flower from God given to her family, adding that in God's season, he decided to pluck the flower.

President Tsvangirai said: "Nyarai represents a generation of Zimbabwean youths, whose expectations we should strive to fulfill. The gap between their expectations and what we are delivering as a country is so wide. Every youth here expects to have a job, to have a family.

He added that Zimbabwe has talented young people and the parents need to instil hope in the children. Nyarai passed away on Friday at her parents' home in Domboshava. She was 32.

Meanwhile the MDC has strongly condemned cases of arson being reported across Masvingo province saying perpetrators of such barbaric acts are extremely afraid of change. MDC provincial chairman, Wilstaff Sitemere told The Real Change Times in an interview last Thursday the provincial leadership was deeply saddened by cases of politically related arson across the province adding the incidents were well calculated in a bid to cow MDC.
