Mugabe to be Reburied at National Heroes Acre

A top Zimbabwean court has ordered for the exhuming of Robert Mugabe’s body for reburial at national heroes’ shrine in Harare.

Following the death of the former president there was a lot of drama on where to bury the President.

Mugabe’s family led by former first Lady, Grace Mugabe wanted to bury the body close to their home.

However, the Chief of Zvimba wanted the president to be buried at his village.

The Zimbabwean government wanted Mugabe to be laid to rest at a special mausoleum at the National Heroes’ Acre but his family refused, saying he wanted to be buried near the grave of his late mother, Bona.

The chief fined Mrs. Mugabe five cattle and a goat for burying the former president at his homestead instead of the family cemetery in Kutama village.

The Mugabe family rejected the village court order with the late president’s nephew, Leo Mugabe, saying they will fight the case to the bitter end.
