Mugabe buried in Kutama village

Zimbabwe’s former President Robert Mugabe was buried on October 28 in his home village of Kutama, ending an argument between his clan and the government of his successor President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

Mugabe (95) died in a Singapore hospital on September from cancer after chemotherapy treatment was stopped because it was no longer effective. 

Mugabe and is family were bitter about the way he was ousted in coup-d’état by his former ally Emmerson Mnangagwa. After Mugabe‘s death family entered a dispute with incumbent President Mnangagwa, who was represented by government officials, offering the burial at the monument for liberation war heroes. The proposal assessed by many as an attempt to use an opportunity to reach public reconciliation with Mugabe’s supporters.
