Robert Mugabe finally laid to rest in his home town

The remains  of Zimbabwe’s former president Robert Mugabe was finally laid to rest on Saturday in his rural village of Kutama.

The former President, was said to have died in a Singapore hospital on September 6, aged 95, almost two years after a military coup ended his despotic 37-year rule.

Mugabe’s widow Grace and his children accompanied the casket – draped in Zimbabwe’s green, yellow, red and black flag.

White flower installations spelt out the words “Dad” and “Baba”, meaning “father” in the local Shona language.

“This is a man who made use of the gifts he was given by God,” said the priest who presided over the funeral. “This man was an asset, he was not a liability.”
