Zanele Moyo’s body arrives for burial


The body of Zanele, the fourth daughter of Higher and Tertiary Education Minister Professor Jonathan Moyo, arrived in Harare yesterday from South Africa where she was found dead in her apartment on Saturday.

Prof Moyo went to South Africa to collect Zanele’s body on Sunday and was accompanied by family friend and businessman Philip Chiyangwa, and lawyer Terrence Hussein.


Zanele (20) was a first year Political Science, International Relations and Gender Studies student at the University of Cape Town.

There was a sombre atmosphere at the Harare International Airport as relatives waited for the body. Others were singing church hymns consoling the family.

The body was welcomed by Zanele’s mother, Mrs Beatrice Moyo, family members and senior Government officials before it was escorted to Nyaradzo Funeral Parlour in Willowvale.

A short service was conducted before body viewing by her parents, siblings and other close relatives.

Zanele will be buried tomorrow at Glen Forest Memorial Park.
