Mugabe Caskets Story Explained

Ever since the body of the former president touched down in Zimbabwe for burial last month, social media was rife with stories and speculations. One of the stories that were circulating on social media is of how the family had changed the former leader’s casket 3 times.

A source took the time to debunk the stories and set the record straight by saying:

The confusion was that when that wooden casket arrived at the airport, it was wrapped in a brown hessian cloth as it had been carried among luggage from Singapore and the covering was meant to ensure it does not get damaged. This is very normal.

When the body arrived at the airport, it was taken to One Commando Barracks where the hessian cloth was removed before the exposed brown wooden casket with independent side and front flap handles was taken to Cde Mugabe’s Borrowdale Brooke home.

It was only placed into another casket on Monday morning by Doves undertakers before going to Zvimba. The casket that was in Zvimba is the same whose pictures circulated in the media when Julius Malema came. It is also the same that the former President has been buried in.
