Security Around Mugabe's Grave To Be Reinforced
The family of the late former President Robert Mugabe has forced some Kutama villagers to relocate their cattle pens to pave way for the construction of a protective precast wall at his rural home.
Mugabe’s nephew, Dominic Matibiri, told NewsDay Weekender that the wall was meant to protect the late national hero’s remains from being tampered with by his former colleagues in ZANU PF. Said Matibiri:
Since we buried our father there, a precast wall is a security measure to prevent his enemies from tampering around with his remains, considering that he was no longer a Zanu PF member.
Mugabe died on 6 September this year in Singapore where he had been receiving treatment for cancer.
His remains were initially set to be buried at the National Heroes Acre where a mausoleum was set to be constructed for his burial, but his widow, Grace, demanded that the burial take place in Zvimba.
