Yes, it is true, the former President will be buried in Zvimba on Saturday (tomorrow). I will let you know once I have the programme.
Meanwhile, a Chinese company has since started building Mugabe’s US$1 million mausoleum at the National Heroes Acre.
Leo did not reveal what would happen to the special grave.
The new arrangement contradicts the earlier agreement the government had reached with Zvimba chiefs, to bury Zimbabwe’s founding father at the National Heroes Acre.
The government has said that it will respect the decision of the Mugabe family.
