Marley exhumation claims 'very painful'
Yesterday there were several reports that Rita intended to exhume the reggae legend's remains and move them to Ethiopia, his 'spiritual home' and birthplace of Rastafarian spiritual leader Haile Selassie.
Apparently Rita's words have been "twisted", according to Desta Meghoo-Peddie of the Marley Foundation. She told BBC 1Xtra: "She does express honestly and candidly the fact that Bob, as a Rasta man, loved Ethiopia and she would love to see the day where he is laid to rest in his father's land, and she has never been secretive about that.
"But we have never ever put out anything saying Bob is going to be exhumed, and returned home, and it is very painful to see something so wonderful is being twisted."
