This is according to a letter by the defiant traditional leader, which was also shared on social media by the late leader’s one-time spokesperson Jealousy Mawarire.
“I give powers to those who are permitted by law to exhume the late Robert Mugabe’s remains from Kutama and rebury them at the National Heroes Acre in Harare,” read the Shona ruling by Chief Zvimba.
The chief ordered Grace to compensate all those who will carry out the duty of exhuming and reburying Mugabe at the national shrine should the ex-First Lady fail to carry out the task herself.
Zimbabwe’s fierce ruler for 37 years until his ouster in a coup 2017, Mugabe was buried at his homestead in Mashonaland West province’s Zvimba district in 2019.
His widow and extended family defied spirited attempts by the Emmerson Mnangagwa led government that dethroned him, to have the founding leader buried at the national shrine where a mausoleum was being build in his honour.
