Family spokesperson of the late former President Robert Mugabe, Leo Mugabe confirmed that burial will take place at the National Heroes Acre.

He, however, did not disclose when the burial will take place with some reports suggesting that it could be as early as Sunday or as late as Tuesday.

Speaking to reporters flanked by former Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe governor, Gideon Gono who is a close friend (sahwira) of the Mugabe family and Harare lawyer, Lovemore Madhuku, Leo said:

The family and the traditional leaders have agreed that he will be buried at the National Heroes Acre. As to when he is going to be buried, there are things that the chiefs want to be done at Heroes Acre, those will take time…

The issues to do with a private burial, I think those issues still are there. Heroes Acre, yes, but perhaps it will still remain private at a time to be advised. It’s definitely post-Sunday…

I would want also dispel rumours doing rounds that the chiefs were paid. They were not paid. It’s total, absolute nonsense…

The revelation puts to an end, the will he, or will he not, be buried at the National Heroes Acre rumours.
