Mugabe's Public Funeral Service Set For September 14

Former Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe will reportedly be laid to rest in the country's National Heroes Acre. While the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has not confirmed where the former ZANU-PF leader - who died at the age of 95 in Singapore - will be buried, New Zimbabwe is quoting sources saying he will be buried in Harare rather than his home village. In a notice to diplomatic missions, the foreign affairs ministry said there would be a public funeral service at the National Sports Stadium in Harare on Saturday September 14, followed by the burial the following day.
