The body of Robert Mugabe will be buried in his home town, following a final twist in a row over the former Zimbabwean leader’s resting place.

Mugabe died this month aged 95 and a funeral was held in the capital Harare.

The government resisted his family’s wish for him to be buried in his home region of Zvimba, deciding that he should lay in Heroes Acre – a national monument and burial ground.

The family eventually consented, but yesterday the government backtracked.

It is not immediately clear what prompted the late change in plans.. In a statement published yesterday the Information, Minister Nick Mangwana said the change was in line with policy “to respect the wishes of families of deceased heroes”.
