“I can confirm that he will be buried at the National Heroes Acre on Sunday,” Leo Mugabe said, adding that the Mugabe family had held further consultations with the government since it said on Thursday that Zimbabwe’s founder would be buried privately.

Mugabe died aged 95 on Friday in Singapore after battling ill health. He served as Zimbabwean Prime Minister from 1980 to 1987 and then as President from 1987 to 2017.
