But as the remains of country's former main opposition leader were laid to rest the burden of responsibility weighed heavier on the shoulders of the interim MDC party president.

Zimbabwe's president visited the home of deceased opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai to pay condolences to his family and to urge unity as power struggles within the opposition have heightened tensions.

Mr Tsvangirai's body is scheduled to be interred at his rural home in Humanikwa Village, Buhera today.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa pledged Sunday that his government will meet hospital and funeral expenses for Tsvangirai, who died of colon cancer last week in neighboring South Africa.

The former Prime Minister and Tsangirai are said to have met in 1993 when Mr. Odinga led an International Republican Institute team to train political parties and civil society in Zimbabwe for the multi-party elections that were approaching then. That is his legacy.

Acting MDC-T leader Nelson Chamisa said the message was private and could not be read out in public amidst chants from the crowd that it be read out. Meanwhile, thousands of people who included politicians, MDC-T party supporters, representatives from the Zambian Congress of Trade Unions and the leader of the popular Democratic Movement of Namibia thronged the Robert Mugabe Square in Harare to bid farewell to Mr Tsvangirai yesterday.
