Robert Mugabe’s nephew has said the former Zimbabwean leader died a “very bitter” man. Late Mugabe, who died aged 95 last week, led Zimbabwe for nearly four decades until he was ousted by a coup in 2017.
In a recent interview with the BBC, his nephew, Leo Mugabe said, ‘Imagine people you trusted – people that were guarding you, looking after you turning] against you. He was very bitter and it dented his legacy. It was not an easy thing for him to take”.
Robert Mugabe died in SIngapore and his body is expected to be taken to his home village, which is about 80km (50 miles) west of the capital Harare, for an overnight wake this Wednesday. His official funeral will take place on Saturday at the 60,000 capacity National Sports Stadium in Harare, according to government officials.
