Emotional Raila addresses thousands as Tsvangirai is laid to rest

National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga on Tuesday joined the people of Zimbabwe as they laid to rest the late Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party leader and the former prime minister Morgan Tsvangirai.

Mr Tsvangirai was a fierce critic of former President Robert Mugabe’s administration and was seen as a revolutionary leader who would have liberated Zimbabwe from the shackles of poor governorship and dictatorship.

The close ally to Mr Odinga passed on last week Wednesday after a spirited and long fight with colon cancer.

During the burial ceremony in Buhera, few kilometers from Harare, Odinga described the late politician as an African hero.

“Morgan was a dear friend and I pray that the Almighty grants comfort to his family, his party MDC and the people of Zimbabwe at this trying moment. May his soul forever rest in peace. Fare thee well great hero of Africa,” said the former premier who addressed thousands of mourners.

Odinga was accompanied with Kisumu Governor Professor Anyang’ Nyong’o and Beryl Achieng on Monday evening and was welcomed by acting MDC President Nelson Chamisa.
