Mugabe buried in village after row over resting place
Kutama: Zimbabwe’s founding leader Robert Mugabe was buried on Saturday in his village of Kutama, ending a dispute between his family and the government of his successor President Mnangagwa over his final resting place. Mugabe died on September 6 aged 95, bitter at the way former allies conspired to topple him in 2017 and told his family he did not want his “tormentors” to preside over his burial, family members said. As a libertaion hero Mugabe should have been buried at the National Heroes Acre in Harare, but his family had rejected the government proposals. Mugabe was buried without the pomp reserved for national heroes.
