ZANU-PF Tsholotsho North MP, Sibangumuzi Khumalo was Sunday booed at a funeral in Mswigana village in Tsholotsho when he tried to praise President Emmerson Mnangagwa's leadership.

According to, addressing mourners during the burial of the late Tsholotsho Rural District Council chairman Esau Siwela's son Mehluleli, Khumalo touched a raw nerve when he used the platform to heap praise on Mnangagwa for "fighting" starvation in the country.

"When I was campaigning, I promised you a lot of development. But now there is hunger in the country. However, I can assure you that President Emmerson Mnangagwa is working hard to bring food for you," Khumalo said amid booing from the mourners.

Sources who attended the funeral told that Khumalo abruptly cut short his speech following the embarrassing incident.

Mehluleli died in a car accident last week after his vehicle overturned in the Esigodini area
