HARARE – Former Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe will be buried at the National Heroes Acre monument in Harare on Sunday (September 15), Mugabe family spokesman Leo Mugabe told Reuters, rowing back from comments the family made a day earlier.

“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 government since it said on Thursday that Zimbabwe’s founder would be buried privately.
