Former Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe is expected to be buried next Sunday, state media reported.Mugabe, an ex-guerrilla leader who became the southern African country's first leader following independence from white minority rule in 1980 and held on to power until he was forced to resign in 2017, died in Singapore on Friday.Mnangagwa, who described Mugabe as a "a great teacher and mentor," declared him a national hero, the highest posthumous award in the country and said official mourning will only end after the burial at the National Heroes Acre, a hilltop shrine reserved exclusively for Zimbabweans who made huge sacrifices during the war against white-minority rule.
