Remains of Mugabe arrive in Harare

Mugabe's funeral itinerary announced burial place unknown yet

Mugabe's funeral itinerary announced burial place unknown yet

He died in Singapore last week at the age of 95.

The group, who included Vice President Kembo Mohadi, attended a private Catholic mass for Mugabe at the funeral parlor where his body is, officiated by a Zimbabwean priest. They don't tell us how to bury our heroes, they are not heroes.

Mnangagwa, senior officials and other Mugabe family members were at the airport to receive the body.

Speaking during a post cabinet press briefing Information Minister Monica Mutsvangwa said Mugabe's body will arrive in the country on Wednesday afternoon and the details of his burial will be advised in due course.

He will be buried on Sunday after a state funeral on Saturday.

Members of the defence forces carry the coffin of Zimbabwe's former ruler, Robert Mugabe, upon arrival at RG Mugabe airport in Harare on Wednesday.

His body arrived at Harare's Robert Gabriel Mugabe global airport shortly after 1330 GMT. Mugabe's first wife, Sally, is buried at Heroes' Acre and a vacant plot reserved for the former president is next to her grave. "It is likely that Mugabe will be buried at this Zvimba homestead if the family manages to hold on to its guns that the late leader should not buried at the national shrine", the family source revealed. "They stabbed him in the back". These include former Cabinet ministers Jonathan Moyo, Saviour Kasukuwere, Patrick Zhuwao and others who fled persecution.

Apple and Foxconn broke Chinese labor law to build latest iPhones
According to the report , workers at Zhengzhou Foxocnn put in at least 100 overtime hours a month during peak production seasons. CLW says that the number has now fallen from 50 percent to 30 percent, but that still violates Chinese labour laws.

Responding to questions from the media, Mutsvangwa said government officials have been attending committees on the issue of Mugabe's burial. "The Delegation pledged full support to government arrangements and programmes which are being drawn up and executed in close consultation with the family of the late departed", he said.

"He died a very bitter man". Family spokesperson Leo Mugabe was not picking calls yesterday. "Even a witch or wizard is mourned by everyone who cares to grieve with the bereaved family".

"When he was 93-94 he was able to walk but the speed with which he deteriorated after the coup is just incredible and I can imagine what he was going through and that's why I am saying, he rested", said nephew, Leo Mugabe. "Our enemies are trying to destabilise the party by creating friction".

All that, as we said, was expected.

Up to the mid-1990s Mr Mugabe held our respect, to the point that on September 5, 1996 he was conferred with an honorary Order of Jamaica "in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the fight for liberation and the overthrow of apartheid in Southern Africa, and his distinct leadership in the pursuit of freedom and human development throughout the African continent". Mugabe's legacy is not in dispute.

"Mugabe's sacrifices, especially in struggling for the political and economic emancipation of his people, will always be remembered by posterity", said Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari.
