More than a dozen current and former leaders, including South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, Equatorial Guinea President Theodore Obiang Nguema, Thabo Mbeki and Uhuru Kenyatta are guests at the event.

The Funeral that is underway at the National Sports Stadium was preceded by confusion as Mugabe’s family differed with the state on Mugabe’s final resting place.

Reports indicate that the State preferred to have Mugabe’s remains interred at Heroes Square Acre while the family wanted the liberation hero buried in his home.
