Mugabe’s family had since the arrival of his body from Singapore, kept vigil over his remains because the former president had expressed fears to close family members before his death that some of the people who ousted him would seek to conduct a traditional ritual with some of his body parts, Mugabe’s nephew Leo Mugabe said
The late leader was buried yesterday at his rural home in Kutama Village in Zvimba after the family made a last-minute decision to buy him there instead of the National Heroes acre as per the initial plan. A Mausoleum was already being constructed for him at the Heroes acre.
