Update: 9 March 2008

Via MDC Press Release -- Zimbabweans from all walks of life are expected to attend a farewell ceremony at Glamis Stadium in Harare tomorrow to pay their last respects to Amai Susan Tsvangirai who died in a horrific car accident on Friday.

The MDC President and Zimbabwe’s Prime Minister, the Right Honourable Morgan Tsvangirai, sustained injuries in the same accident.

The MDC urges all Zimbabweans to attend the farewell ceremony at Glamis Stadium in remembrance of the mother of our struggle who has stood as a pillar of strength and support to the MDC President over the past 31years.

The ceremony takes place at Glamis Stadium at 12pm tomorrow while burial is expected to take place in Buhera on Wednesday morning.

Today, Amai Tsvangirai’s body will lie in state at the family home in Strathaven, Harare.
