African leaders laud Mugabe at state funeral in divided Zimbabwe

It has further emerged that Mugabe's properties in Mt Plesant, Waterfalls and the Blueroof were still registered in Zanu Pf's name and Grace and her family risked losing them if they antagonised the government.

Meanwhile numerous Zimbabweans told News24 they did not attend Mugabe's funeral because of other commitments but that they had taken other opportunities to honour the former liberation hero. Mugabe spent most of his life as president in the multi-storey 25-bedroom mansion, which was reportedly built by the Serbian company, Energo- project.

His remains will be interred in a mausoleum at the National Heroes Acre in the capital Harare in about 30 days, his nephew said on Friday, contradicting earlier comments that a burial would be held on Sunday.

There has also been tensions between the Mugabe family and the Zimbabwean government, with the family publicly rebuking President Emmerson Mnangagwa's government for planning the former leader's funeral without consulting them, in a statement.

According to reports some of the Mugabe family's allies have refused to return to their homeland to bury the former statesmen out of fear of being targeted by Mnangagwa's government. The family had wished for him to be buried in his hometown.

"He said: "... The bold, steadfast and resolute revolutionary, Comrade Robert Gabriel Mugabe, is no more". "There is no truth in that, we were not pressured by anyone as the family. Chief Zvimba and his team made the decision", he said. "It's so amusing. The party (ZANU-PF) is the one that bought the first house in Mt Pleasant and the land for the Blue Roof property".

Saviour Kasukuwere, another former minister who was also part of the G40 faction and was at one point tipped to succeed Mugabe, also lamented the treatment of the former president after his removal from power. "I was told by President Mnangagwa that the party will help to transfer the title deeds of the properties to the former President's family".

Uhuru who was accompanied to the ceremony by former vice president Kalonzo Musyoka and Devolution CS Eugene Wamalwa eulogised the deceased ex-commander in chief as an icon of Africa's liberation struggle.

"First let me say that for all of us, the whole of Africa, the memories of the years of decolonization, the years of the struggle for black majority rule in various places are years that bring joy and confidence to most of us, especially leaders today".

But Simon Khaya Moyo, a spokesperson for the governing Zanu-PF pleaded ignorance when asked about the house. Addressing journalists in Zvimba yesterday, Mr Mugabe said: "The issue of properties is being handled by the President".

Chinamasa said: "It's true that the properties are registered in the party name, but why don't you go and talk to his daughter?"
