The family of the late former President Robert Mugabe finally relented to have him buried at the National Heroes Acre, Zim Morning Post claims.

The report said its sources revealed that the Mugabe family and senior government officials held a series of meetings since Friday.

It says:

We held our final meeting yesterday (Sunday) at the Munhumutapa office where it was agreed the veteran leader will be laid to rest at the National Heroes Acre.

The meeting was chaired by chief of protocol Munyaradzi Kajese and some of the people who attended include Mugabe family spokesperson Leo Mugabe, Philip Chiyangwa, several chiefs and headmen from Zvimba.

Former minister Michael Bimha represented the former first lady Grace Mugabe’s family, the Marufus.

Mugabe’s nephew, Leo Mugabe is reported to have expressed his unhappiness because the Mnangagwa government had treated him with disdain since the coup.
