Heroes Acre Has Become An Ordinary Cemetery After Mugabe Snub – Hopewell Chin’ono

Prominent journalist and award-winning filmmaker, Hopewell Chin’ono says the National Heroes Acre has become just like any other cemetery after its founder, former President Robert Mugabe refused to be buried there. He said:

ZANU PF is genuinely hurting for a good reason. As I mentioned in my June 2017 piece predicting that Bob will not go to the Heroes Acre, ZANU PF knows that without Bob at the Heroes Acre, it becomes just an ordinary cemetery. He knew it too. Some are already thinking of reburials!

Writing on Twitter on 3 June 2017, Chin’ono predicted that Mugabe will snub a National Heroes Acre burial. Commenting on a ZBC News report that Mugabe had left the country for New York, Chin’ono wrote then:

Mugabe doesn’t take advice from anyone because he sees himself as superior.

He has no respect for not only the citizen but for those around him both in his party and government.

I bet that he many trips that he made to the Heroes Acre were meant to fulfil a show, an act, when he dies, he would probably want to have nothing to do with the Heroes Acre.

He will see it as a place where he buried his minions, those he sees as political lumpen.

The Mugabe I know will want to have his own special place where his supporters and admirers come to pay homage without him having to share that attention with other ZANU PF luminaries buried at the hill.

I would like to be proved wrong, time will.

For now, we will continue to pay his airfare bills as he continues his Vasco da Gama trips, useless and insensitive.

That’s Bob for you!

  1. How true you are. The man thought himself as the Chosen one. My foot. Anyway as a so-called Christian , something he never practised , he will be judged like anyone . An ordinary person.

    1. But it sounds like Hopewell Chin’ono is actually praising the late Mugabe, here. One thing that the country should never do going forward is to have it symbolised by one person. I am happy the late Mugabe was buried like an ordinary person, just like Gadaffi! I just do not understand why Zanu Pf will be hurt by what happened.

  2. I wonder if he really didn’t want to be buried there. I would assume he wanted to be superior to his minions even after death with his mausoleum towering over every other grave. The twist came with madam’s personal Agenda. if there was a way to look back after death, the man is angry and feels let down by his own. My view of punishment for him.
