Former Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe died last Friday at the age of 95 at a Singaporean hospital on Friday. Since then, mixed tributes have been pouring in from around the world for the fallen long serving president in Zimbabwean history.
A fearless leader, Mugabe led the country to liberation and away from white rule in 1980 after a fierce war against Rhodesian prime minister Ian smith’s forces.
He died a bitter and powerless man after being deposed by longtime ally president Emmerson Mnangagwa in the 2017 military coup after ruling the country with an iron fist for 37 years.
Mugabe’s body is flown back today to the divided Zimbabwe, he recently asked to be buried in his home village of Kutama in Mashonaland west and not in the hero’s acre in the capital Harare, though other sources suggest he will be buried at Hill top shrines.
In quite a shocking revelation is that he will be buried on Sunday which is president Mnangagwa’s 75th Birth day and it’s revealed while approaching his last days, Mugabe gave instructions that Mnangagwa should never attend his burial.
However ED president Emmerson Mnangagwa said he can’t celebrate his own birth day due to the death of Zimbabwean founding president RG Mugabe and will give him a special send off on his birth day.
