ZIMBABWE – Pretoria – Minister of Health, Dr Aaron Motsoaledi, held a meeting with the family of Zimbabwe’s Minister of Higher and Tertiary Education, Jonathan Moyo, on Thursday.
The meeting, which was held in Zimbabwe, discussed issues surrounding the events of the investigation and the manner in which the post mortem of Minister Moyo’s daughter was handled.
University of Cape Town (UCT) student Zanele Moyo was found dead in her flat last month, in South Africa.
The meeting was also attended by Zimbabwe’s Health Minister, Dr David Parirenyatwa.
“After a thorough discussion, the three parties agreed that since this matter involves two sovereign states and due to the problems and confusion encountered thus far, it was decided that the matter be elevated to the most senior ministerial levels in both governments.
“It was also agreed that a process be set up between the Ministry of Health in South Africa and his Zimbabwean counterparts, with the help of relevant authorities and experts from both countries to expedite and take the matter to its finality,” the Department of Health said.
This process will entail a review of the investigation and the progress made to date as well as post mortem procedures and conclusions.
The process will also look at the repatriation of the outstanding remains.
The Ministers took this opportunity to express their deepest condolences from their respective governments to the Moyo Family and pledged to help as much as they can.
