Speaking at the burial of Foreign Affairs Minister Sibusiso Moyo, Transport Minister Joel Matiza and former prisons chief Paradzayi Zimondi, who all succumbed to the virus, Chiwenga said: “Yes it is not a stroll in the park, what is crucial at this stage is to share a collective identity as a people with a rich diversity paying special attention to our beliefs, affiliations and values. The time is up for that unity of diversity to be viewed as a strength and not as a weakness.”
