The three national heroes – Foreign Affairs and International Trade Minister Lieutenant General Sibusiso Busi Moyo, Transport and Infrastructural Development Minister Dr Joel Biggie Matiza and former Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Services Commissioner General Major-General Paradzai Zimondi – have been buried at the National Heroes Acre this afternoon.
All of them died of Covid-19-related complications last week. They were buried in line with World Health Organisation (WHO) Covid-19 guidelines.
The burial of the trio, a first in the country since 1980, was presided over by Acting President Constantino Chiwenga. He said the three late national heroes dedicated their lives for the country’s independence and development.
