A mausoleum being built for the late former President Robert Robert Mugabe at the National Heroes Acre will take longer than 30 days to complete.
Zim Morning Post was told by its sources that the actual construction has not yet begun as civil works at the shrine are still ongoing. Said the sources:
Work at the site began a week ago and so far civil works on top of the mountain where the mausoleum will be built are underway.
There is a need for construction of the retaining walls before the real construction can take place.
The Chinese company, Shanghai Construction Group, which has the capacity to carry out this project in terms of adequate equipment, is yet to give a time frame for the completion of work, but a month is not enough.
Chances that the one-month deadline will be met are slim, and it does not seem that Mugabe will be buried anytime soon.
The contractors have to cut into the mountain and build the retaining wall. They will then construct the steps and all this is being done.
