Robert Mugabe's body being flown home from Singapore

The body of former Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe arrives back in the country after he died on Friday in Singapore after a long illness Harare Zimbabwe

Information Minister Monica Mutsvangwa said in a statement that the government has dispatched Vice President Kembo Mohadi and other senior officials and family members to Singapore to accompany Mugabe's body home. Thousands of people gathered to watch as the plane carrying dictator's remains landed at Harare's worldwide airport, which bears his name, early in the afternoon.

A family spokesperson confirmed on Monday that a plane left Zimbabwe for Singapore carrying government officials and relatives to bring home the body of Robert Mugabe. "I also don't know", he said.

On Thursday the 12 and Friday the 13 of September, the body will be taken to Rufaro Stadium in Harare to give Zimbabweans an opportunity to bid farewell to the late founding President of post independent Zimbabwe.

Mr Mugabe's final resting place remains unclear amid reports of disagreements between his family and President Emmerson Mnangagwa's government. Mugabe's first wife, Sally, is buried there next to a gravesite long reserved for the leader. A spokesman for the Mugabe family could not immediately be reached for comment. They don't tell us how to bury our heroes, they are not heroes.

His body is expected in the country tomorrow, the day the late Major-General Trust Mugoba will be laid to rest at the National Heroes Acre. This has prompted speculation of a rift between the government and members of Mugabe's family, who want him to be buried at his rural home in Kutama, about 85 kilometers (52 miles) southwest of Harare.

Mnangagwa and his party want Mugabe buried at a national monument to heroes of the liberation war against the white minority Rhodesian regime.

Asked whether Mugabe had been bitter about being ousted, he said: "Everybody is human".

"Mugabe's sacrifices, especially in struggling for the political and economic emancipation of his people, will always be remembered by posterity", said Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari. "When you go through an experience of that sort, of course you feel pain", Molai said.

The Zimbabwean government said in a memo sent to embassies that it planned to hold a state funeral for Mugabe in the National Sports Stadium on Saturday, with a burial ceremony on Sunday, but it did not say where the burial would be. He led Zimbabwe for nearly four decades until he was toppled in November 2017.
