A very influential Zimbabwean traditional leader, Chief Zvimba, has summoned former First Lady, Grace Mugabe, to appear before a village court where she faces charges of burying the body of president Robert Mugabe without following due process.
The chief is pushing for the exhumation of the body which lies interred in Zvimba, Mugabe’s homestead, and have it buried next to his mother, Bona Mugabe.
The letter, written in Shona, reads:
“You are facing charges of burying the late Robert Gabriel Mugabe at his homestead. This is unheard of in Chief Zvimba’s area. At the same, time you are accused of abandoning Robert Gabriel Mugabe’s property which is scattered nationwide.
“All 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.”
Grace Mugabe will have to pay five cows and one goat as compensation to the traditional authority, she has been asked to bring a witness, while her failure to show up at the traditional court will see judgment being passed against her favour.
Mugabe passed away on the 6th of September 2019 soon after being toppled from power by a military coup, orchestrated by elements of the military and the sitting president, Emmerson Mnangagwa.
