On Thursday and Friday, Mugabe's body will lie in state at Rufaro Stadium in the capital so the public can pay their respects.
Mugabe's family is pushing back against the government's plan to bury him at the National Heroes Acre monument in Harare and wants him to be interred in his home village, relatives have told Reuters.
But Mugabe is believed to have told his family that he wanted to be buried quietly with his mother, denying the politicians and generals who toppled him in 2017 the chance to "pontificate" over his dead body.
He said, "Mugabe was a chief and he will be buried in accordance with tradition". Mugabe's first wife, Sally, is buried at Heroes' Acre and a vacant plot reserved for the former president is next to her grave.More news: Driver filmed 'sleeping' at the wheel of Tesla
