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.
According to Mugabe’s nephew, Leo Mugabe, who is also the family’s spokesman, Mugabe was a chief and he would be given a traditional burial. He said, “Mugabe was a chief and he will be buried in accordance with tradition. The chiefs have not told us where he will be buried, so it is not clear yet. I also don’t know”.
Mugabe died on Friday at the age of 95 in Singapore, where he was receiving medical treatment. Mugabe’s body is expected back in Zimbabwe on Wednesday.
