Mnangagwa meets Mugabe family representatives to discuss burial arrangements


President Emmerson Mnangagwa today met representatives of the Mugabe family led by Chief Zvimba to discuss burial arrangements for the former President whose body is expected in Harare tomorrow.

Mugabe died on Friday and was declared a national hero but there is still confusion on where he will be buried but so far arrangements are that he will be buried on Sunday.

Presidential spokesman George Charamba did not shed any new light after the meeting.

“The delegation appreciated government support from time of hospitalization and treatment of former President and founding father, Cde Mugabe, right up to the time of his passing on,” Charamba was quoted by the Zimbabwe Broadcasting as saying.

“They were thankful especially for government’s arrangements and support in repatriating the remains of the former President which are expected in tomorrow afternoon.

“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.”
