Zimbabwe: Mourners pay respects to deceased Opp. party leader

Mourners gathered to pay tribute to the deceased leader of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party, Morgan Tsvangirai, outside the party headquarters in Harare, Zimbabwe on Thursday. Clad in bright red and adorned with the party emblems, the crowd performed the traditional funeral dance common in Zimbabwe. «We have suspended all party programs until the burial of our... Еще president,” a speaker of MDC party told the crowds adding, «Wellington Chibebe has been appointed to act in place of president of Morgan Tsvangirai for a period of 12 months.» Having being diagnosed with colon cancer in 2016, Tsvangirai was being treated in the neighbouring South Africa where he passed away at the age of 65. His death now casts a long shadow on the approaching presidential elections which is due before or during September 2018. Zimbabwe's president, Emmerson Mnangagwa, expressed his condolences saying, the upcoming elections must be free and fair «in tribute to him.»
