I want to register my disgust and embarrassment with Zimbabwean Embassy in SA.
A tragedy took place more than a week ago of a Zimbabwean woman and her three kids who were found dead in Nelspruit Mpumalanga.
No-one even a cleaner from the Embassy ever lifted a finger to visit or enquirer about the bereaved family. Surprisingly the SA govt immediately dispatched a Deputy minister of Social Development to meet the family.
The family was given much needed assistance, which included tents, food, transport (incl. 4 buses) and coffins. And I was embarrassed when it was time for vote of thanks we had to appoint a Zimbabwean vendor to represent the Zimbabwe government. Or maybe I don't know the duties of an Embassy in a foreign country.
The funeral service was held yesterday in Nelspruit with the attendance of high ranking Mpumalanaga govt leadership, residents and Zimbabwean community.
