Vimbai Tsvangirai send-off gala in pictures

By Idah Mhetu


A planned send-off procession for the late opposition MDC MP for Glen View South Vimbai Tsvangirai-Java to allow her constituents to bid farewell to her turned into a celebration of the late lawmaker’s life.

It was also a stark reminder of the impact her father, late party leader and former Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai had on Zimbabwean politics.

NewZimbabwe.com captured the tears, joys, singing, dancing as well as emotional prayer moments:
