Mugabe To Be Buried In Zvimba This Weekend – Report

ZimLive reports that former President Robert Mugabe’s body will be buried in Zvimba in a private ceremony this weekend after the Mugabe family decided against a National Heroes Acre burial.

The body could leave the Blue Roof Mansion on Thursday for Zvimba, with burial likely to be done on Saturday.

The government had already drawn plans to construct a single ‘Presidential Mausoleum’ which would contain graves of former presidents, not just Mugabe’s.

A family member who spoke to the publication is quoted as saying:

President Mugabe did not want to be buried at the Heroes Acre to stop those who tormented him in his final days from pontificating over his dead body.

It would be unconscionable to have him buried next to the man whom he held most responsible.

Mugabe’s widow, Grace, and children Bona and Robert Junior together with some of the former president’s nephews, among them Patrick Zhuwao and Walter Chidakwa, are said to have been vehemently opposed to Mugabe’s burial at the National Heroes Acre

Mugabe reportedly told his relatives before his death that he prefered to be buried in Kutama Village where he grew up and his mother, Bona, is buried.
