President Mugabe's Burial

The matter can now be put to rest – it’s been decided Zimbabwe’s former president Robert Mugabe would be buried at the National Heroes Acre monument, in about 30 days, once a mausoleum was built for him. Mugabe's burial has been a point of dispute between his family – who wanted to bury him at his rural homestead Zvimba – and the government, which pushed for the body to rest at a national monument in the capital. He died during a medical trip to Singapore aged 95, leaving Zimbabweans torn over the legacy of a man who is some still lauded for his role as a colonial-era liberation hero.
