JUST IN | Mugabe's body arrives in Zimbabwe

The burial was earlier scheduled to hold on Sunday, September 15th in Zimbabwe, but it is not likely to hold again as family members of the deceased ex-president confirmed the development to Zimlive.

PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa's government has remained mum as regards the intricate details of former President Robert Mugabe's burial including where he will be laid to rest.

The former president had been receiving hospital treatment in the city state before he died last week aged 95. A programme would be announced by the home affairs ministry later in the day, he said. "Yet she has a duty of care to be with her husband's body at all times!"

Mugabe's wife, Grace, and the Zimbabwean vice-president Kembo Mohadi were among those accompanying the body on the plane, according to Leo Mugabe, a nephew and family spokesman.

"Mugabe was a chief and he will be buried in accordance with tradition".

Zimbabwe's Information Minister Monica Mutsvangwa said his body will lie in state at Rufaro Stadium and then at the National Sports Stadium for a total of three days.

Mnangagwa declared his predecessor a national hero and said official mourning will only end after the burial at the National Heroes Acre, a hilltop shrine reserved exclusively for Zimbabweans who made huge sacrifices during the war against white-minority rule.

Asked whether Mugabe had been bitter about being ousted, he said: "Everybody is human". He had dominated Zimbabwean politics for nearly four decades from independence in 1980 until he was removed by his own army in a November 2017 coup.

Mugabe, who enjoyed strong backing from Zimbabwe's people after taking over in 1980, but whose support waned following decades of repression, economic mismanagement and allegations of election-rigging, is expected to be buried on Sunday, state media reported.
