President Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa has just met with Chiefs from Zvimba, Elders and Members of the Mugabe Family, led by Chief Zvimba.

The delegation appreciated government support from time of hospitalisation and treatment of former President and Founding Father, Cde Mugabe, right up to the time of his passing on.

They were thankful, especially for the government’s arrangements and support in repatriating the remains of the former President which are expected in Harare tomorrow afternoon

The delegation pledged full support to the government’s arrangements and programmes which are being drawn up and executed in close consultation with the family of the late Cde Mugabe.

The meeting which lasted for under an hour took place at the President’s Munhumutapa offices in Harare.

Meanwhile, Minister of State for Harare province Oliver Chidawu has said a total of 195 buses have been allocated for the burial of the late former president Robert Mugabe.

However there are reports that the burial of the late former President, which was supposed to take place on Sunday has been postponed indefinitely.

Mugabe’s family and President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government are apparently at odds over whether the burial would be at his homestead in Zvimba or at the National Heroes Acre.
