The late former President Robert Mugabe’s family is seething with anger after Chief Zvimba ordered the exhumation and the reburial of his remains at the National Heroes’ Acre before the 1st of July.
Zimbabwe’s founding President was buried at his Kutama homestead in Zvimba District, Mashonaland West Province, on September 28 2017 as per his deathbed request.
Chief Zvimba, born Stanley Wurayayi Mhondoro, found his widow Grace Mugabe guilty of “improperly” leading the burial of Mugabe’s remains at his Kutama home.
The traditional leader also found Grace guilty of neglecting Mugabe’s properties.
Mugabe is believed to have properties in Harare, Bulawayo, Chinhoyi and Singapore.
According to the May 20, 2021 judgement delivered to the Mugabe residence today by Chief Zvimba’s aides, Grace was ordered to ensure that Mugabe’s property is collected before July 31, 2021.
“I give powers to those empowered at law to exhume the body of the late Robert Mugabe from Kutama and rebury him at the National Heroes’ Acre in Harare at a place shown by his father Chief Chidziva as per our culture,” the letter read in part. “The father of the deceased who is Chief Chidziva and the mother of the deceased who is Chief Gutu have all agreed that he be buried at the National Heroes’ Acre.”
