BOB TO BE BURIED IN ZVIMBA : LEO


Former president, Robert Mugabe will be buried in Zvimba early next week, says Leo Mugabe.

'His body will lie in state at Kutama on Sunday night.., followed by a private burial - either Monday or Tuesday - no National Heroes Acre. That's the decision of the whole family,' he said.

Mugabe, who died last Friday at the age of 95, has proved troublesome even in death with his family and his successor Emmerson Mnangagwa seemingly at loggerheads about the plans for his funeral.

Mnangagwa wants to bury him at the Heroes Acre memorial in Harare, where a grave is waiting for him and where his first wife Sally is buried.

However, Mugabe's family say he wanted to be buried in his home village and did not want Mnangagwa, who helped to depose him in 2017, presiding over his funeral.
Today the family appears to have won that battle, his nephew Leo Mugabe saying that the Heroes Acre ceremony was out.
