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.”
No senior government officials were among the audience, including President Emmerson Mnangagwa, whohelped remove Mugabe from power in 2017.
