DAILYNEWS Late former Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe will be buried at a monument for national heroes in the capital, Harare, a family spokesman said, but the date has not been decided yet.
The decision to inter Mugabe at the state burial site is the latest turn in the tussle between his family and President Emmerson Mnangagwa, Mugabe's once-trusted deputy who helped remove him from power in late 2017.
On Thursday, the family had said that the former Zimbabwe president, whose body was flown back from Singapore on Wednesday, would be buried in his home town in a private ceremony.
But on Friday, family spokesman Leo Mugabe said it had been decided the deceased would be buried at Heroes' Acre after consultations with influential traditional chiefs.
