Anxiety And Panic As Robert Mugabe's Remains To Be Exhumed

A traditional chief in Zimbabwe has ordered the exhumation and reburial of Mugabe's remains at the national heroes' shrine in Harare according to the local customs. A traditional chief in Zvimba district, which includes Kutama, made this order after receiving a complains from a Mugabe clan member over the manner of his burial.

Robert Mugabe was buried at his village of Kutama after weeks of dispute with Mnangagwa's government over his final resting. After presiding over a village court last Thursday, Chief Zvimba on Monday issued a ruling that found Grace Mugabe guilty of breaking traditional norms by burying her husband in the courtyard of his home.

The traditional court in it's judgment found that the burial ceremony was conducted against the wills of Robert Mugabe and the traditions of the people. The court found that Mugabe's latest plea not to involve this current administration in his burial was ignored hence the ruling.
