A Zimbabwean chief has accused former first lady Grace Mugabe of inappropriately burying the countryâ€™s late President, Robert MugabeÂ at the familyâ€™s homestead, and has called for her to appear before a village court to face charges.
Mugabe has also been instructed to exhume the remains of the late former president so they can be reburied at a gravesite next to his mother Bona.
In the letter, Chief Zvimba says, â€śYou are facing charges of burying the late Robert Gabriel Mugabe at his homestead. This is unheard of in Chief Zvimbaâ€™s area. At the same time, you are accused of abandoning Robert Gabriel Mugabeâ€™s property which is scattered nationwide.â€ť
â€śAll properties of the late Robert Gabriel Mugabe are supposed to be kept at his homestead and handled in line with our traditions. I want you to rebury the late president in accordance with our traditions and in Zvimba at a place designated by the family and his late mother. These charges you are facing attract a fine of five cattle and a goat,â€ť added Zvimba in the letter.
He also ordered Grace to attend the village court next week on Thursday at Gonzo Guzha Hall in Murombedzi Growth Point at 9:30am.
