Mugabe Family, Govt Officials Agree On His Final Resting Place – Report

The family of the late former President Robert Mugabe finally relented to have him buried at the National Heroes Acre, Zim Morning Post claims.

The report said its sources revealed that the Mugabe family and senior government officials held a series of meetings since Friday. It says:

We held our final meeting yesterday (Sunday) at the Munhumutapa office where it was agreed the veteran leader will be laid to rest at the National Heroes Acre.

The meeting was chaired by chief of protocol Munyaradzi Kajese and some of the people who attended include Mugabe family spokesperson Leo Mugabe, Philip Chiyangwa, several chiefs and headmen from Zvimba.

Former minister Michael Bimha represented the former first lady Grace Mugabe’s family, the Marufus.

Mugabe’s nephew, Leo Mugabe is reported to have expressed his unhappiness because the Mnangagwa government had treated him with disdain since the coup.

Meanwhile, former Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) Gideon Gono claimed to be a close friend of the former First Family. Said the report:

Gono told the family that Mugabe has never said he did not want to be buried at the Heroes Acre because he could have written that down or inform one of his best friend (sahwira).

Gono told the family that he has been in good books with the Mugabes even after the veteran leader was out of power.

Gono said Mugabe was not happy by the way he was removed but he has always been principled on his values and those of Zanu PF.

Spokesperson of the National Patriotic Front (NPF), Jealousy Mawarire, a party which was allegedly backed by Mugabe, said that the late national hero should lie among his comrades.

  1. Yes, let him lie next to all his thieving undemocratic murderous friends at Heroes Acre. He can toss and turn as much as he wants, and feel very uncomfortable lying next to them. Over 100000 citizens of Zimbabwe are also lying in the wrong places because of this wretched man.

  2. Dust to dust …. thieves with thieves …….. there will be more money handed out if buried here rather than zvimba …. so a obvious choice .

  3. The obsession with where one of these ‘comrades’ gets buried seems to be unique in Zim. Mandela was buried in his rural village of Qunu. Presidents in the US are buried in different places, often on sites where their presidential libraries have been, or will be built. Why do or should we care where one gets buried? They can declare RGM a national hero and still bury him where he wanted to. Save us the stupidity and tomfoolery nonsense of ZANU-PF thieves & thugs
