Tapiwa Makore to be buried without his head

Tapiwa Makore to be buried without his head. The seven-year-old boy was killed in a suspected ritual murder in September last year, with the perpetrators chopping his body into pieces.

The Makore family has finally decided to bury the headless body of slain son Tapiwa, end of this month at their Nyamutumbu homestead in Murehwa after waiting several months for his missing body parts to be recovered.

Four suspects, among them his uncle and namesake, Tapiwa Makore (senior) and his domestic worker Tafadzwa Shamba have since been arrested in connection with the murder. Speaking to NewsDay on Tuesday, Tapiwa’s father Munyaradzi confirmed the date;

“We are going to bury our son on March 27. We are yet to find the missing head, but as a family, we agreed to proceed with the burial,”
The burial was initially set for the first week of February, but it was postponed due to COVID-19 regulations that barred the movement of bodies.

The boy’s remains are at a funeral parlour in Harare. Mashonaland East traditional leader Chief Mangwende has agreed to preside over the burial after he had initially announced that no corpse would be buried in his area with missing parts.
