Mugabe supporters singing and dancing at the RGM airport waiting for his body expected to land any time soon. The specially chartered flight carrying Mr Mugabe’s body is expected to land in his home country at 15:00 (13:00 GMT), family members told Reuters news agency.

The body of Robert Mugabe has left Singapore on a private flight destined for his home country of Zimbabwe.

The former president had been receiving hospital treatment in the city state before he died last week aged 95.

Mr Mugabe was Zimbabwe’s first leader after the country became independent in 1980. He held on to power for almost four decades before being ousted in a coup in 2017.

He will be buried on Sunday after a state funeral on Saturday.
