According to Chief police spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Wayne Bvudzijena the investigating teams are yet to submit reports to the Police General Headquarters. Bvudzijena said “There is nothing significant to talk of yet as reports are still being reconciled.”

Meanwhile Vice President Joice Mujuru says she will continue emulating the works of her late husband. Speaking to a delegation from the United Methodist Church at her residence yesterday, Mrs Mujuru said she would not give up the good works that her late husband was doing.

“I always ask myself how I am going to do the things that my husband was doing. However, I believe God is going to show me the way. I told myself that a real soldier should not be found with a bullet at the back. If you are found with a bullet at the back it means that you were shot while running away.

“A real soldier should be found with a bullet in the front to show that you were fighting, that is what I have decided to do. Handisi kuzodonhedza mukombe kana kuti baton stick yanga iina VaMujuru. People have given testimonies about what kind of a person he was and I am going to emulate that,” she said.

VP Mujuru said it was important for the church to visit people who would have lost their loved ones so that they would not feel lonely. She said they were still waiting for the outcome of investigations into Gen Mujuru’s death.
