Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development Minister Professor Jonathan Moyo has expressed frustration over the fact that South African pathologists who attended to her daughter Zanele’s death say results would be out after 5 years.
He also expressed concern that South African police who handled the matter did not show interest in immediately pursuing the matter relating to the Zambian national who was last seen with Zanele when he was spotted at OR Tambo airport on Wednesday.
Professor Moyo, who was speaking out for the first time about her daughter’s death, began by telling mourners, including the President, about her daughter’s biography and how she was a brilliant student who had completed her high school education with flying colours.
Professor Moyo was addressing hundreds of mourners who included cabinet ministers, party colleagues and some security officers who thronged his home in Borrowdale to express their condolences.
Zanele had been offered places to study at various universities that she applied to and finally settled for the University of Cape Town where her elder sisters had studied.
President Mugabe in response to the briefing by Professor Moyo has since said government will take up the issue of the investigations into Zanele’s death with the South African authorities to ensure satisfactory answers are given.ZBC
