FORMER president Robert Mugabe, one of the luminaries of the liberation struggle and the architect of the National Heroes’ Acre Monument, which was supposed to symbolise sacrifice, bravery and triumph of good over evil, has told his family members that he does not want to be buried at the North Korean-style shrine in Warren Hills in Harare, it has emerged according to The Independent
Family sources told the Zimbabwe Independent this week Mugabe, (95) and currently bedridden in Singapore for the past three months, has said he does not want the current Zanu PF government to preside over his funeral. Mugabe has made it clear to his family that he does not wish to be buried at the National Heroes’ Acre anymore.
He does not want to be associated with Mnangagwa and all those he now views as his betrayers and tormentors. He has said he doesn’t want them to sing and pontificate over his dead body,” a close family member said. “He has informed relatives about his decision and this is known in the family; it’s also now known in government circles.”
