Robert Mugabe death

Former Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe will be buried at the National Heroes’ Acre site but the date has not yet been set, a family spokesman said Friday, as mourners gathered to view the body for the second day in the capital, Harare.

The decision to inter Mugabe at the state burial site is the latest turn in the tussle between his family and President Emmerson Mnangagwa, Mugabe’s once-trusted deputy who helped to oust him from power in late 2017.

The Mugabe family’s decision on Heroes’ Acre as the burial site for the ex-leader, who died at age 95 in Singapore a week ago, came after consultations with influential traditional chiefs, nephew Leo Mugabe told reporters at the family’s Blue Roof house.

Mugabe death and Now What?

The Heroes’ Acre monument is reserved for top officials of Zimbabwe’s ruling ZANU-PF party who contributed to ending white colonial rule. Mugabe oversaw its construction with North Korean architects atop a prominent hill, featuring a towering sculpture of guerrilla fighters.

His body was on view at Rufaro Stadium for a second day Friday. A stampede on Thursday injured several people trying to view it.

On Saturday, several African heads of state and other dignitaries are expected to attend a state ceremony at the National Sports Stadium. Government officials earlier had said that Mugabe would be given a state burial Sunday at Heroes’ Acre, but his nephew said that was not correct. Full Story
